FORTUNE -- For years, AngelList has freely facilitated introductions between entrepreneurs and investors. Now it's raised some big cash of its own.
Fortune has learned that AngelList recently raised around $24 million at a valuation in the $150 million range. Atlas Venture and Google Ventures helped lead the round, which included participation by more than 100 other institutions and individuals. Among the more notable names are Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Marc Andreessen, Max Levchin and Ev Williams (all of whom have profiles on the site).
None of the venture investors will receive a seat on the AngelList board of directors, nor are the equity investments tied to any proprietary insights. In fact, one reason the company raised money from so many different sources was so as not to appear beholden to any particular firm or individual.

This is not the first time that AngelList has raised funding -- Atlas Venture, for example, first invested a small amount three years ago -- but this is the deal that could help transform AngelList from a popular project into one of Silicon Valley's top power players.
"I first invested personally when it was just [startup investment advice blog] VentureHacks, which was not a VC-backable business," explains Jeff Fagnan, a partner with Atlas Venture. "But today I'd compare it to Craigslist for startups, and they are doing a lot of the things that LinkedIn (LNKD) and NASDAQ (NDAQ) do for larger businesses."

AngelList originally launched as a way to help connect entrepreneurs and investors, but since has expanded into such areas as recruiting and direct online investment (a lot of the $24 million was raised via the AngelList system).
It also has a program called "syndicates" -- a digital twist on the fundless sponsor model. From the AngelList site:
Here's an example. Sara decides to invest in a startup and asks for a $250k allocation in the company. She personally takes $50K of the allocation and decides to syndicate the rest. She shares the deal with investors and specifies that she is charging a 20% carry on the remaining $200K of her allocation. Sara's capital and her co-investor's capital is pooled into a $250K fund which invests in the startup.
In such a scenario, Sara would pay a small cut of her carry back to AngelList. Venture capitalist Hunter Walk yesterday blogged more about syndicates, giving three examples of their "powerful future."
AngelList declined to comment for this story, but I would assume that new products could be rolling out as soon as tomorrow -- as the decades-old ban on general solicitation is officially lifted by the SEC. For example, it will no longer be illegal for startups to tell a general audience that they are seeking investment (even though only accredited investors would be allowed to actually invest). The same will be true for private investment funds.

Some details beyond the dollars.
FORTUNE -- Last month we reported that Uber was in talks with Google Ventures and TPG Capital for a massive fundraise that would value the company well north of $3 billion.
AllThingsD got the goods yesterday afternoon via a Delaware filing, which showed that Uber raised a total of $361 million at a $3.4 billion pre-money valuation. Fortune followed late last night with a scoop about how that Uber's two new board members will MOREDan Primack - Aug 23, 2013 12:32 PM ET
Objective Logistics raises $5.3 million to grow its waitstaff management platform.
FORTUNE -- If you've ever worked in a bar or restaurant, you know that there are certain shifts and sections that are more desirable than others. And you also know that getting a good schedule is capricious at best, and at worst based on how much managerial butt you can kiss.
But Philip Beauregard is working to upend that dynamic through Objective MOREDan Primack - Jul 18, 2013 12:07 PM ET
A better model, or a pretty face on an ugly business?
FORTUNE -- Payday loans are considered a dirty business, both figuratively and literally. Corner stores in rough neighborhoods, bulletproof glass and the quiet desperation that leads someone to borrow $200 at a 400% APR.
But a new startup called LendUp is hoping to change all that. And yesterday it announced a seed round of venture capital from backers that included Andreessen MOREDan Primack - Oct 11, 2012 4:35 PM ET
Ride-sharing startup raises money from Google Ventures, Lightspeed.
Interesting to see Bay Area ride-sharing startup SideCar this morning announce $10 million in new VC funding, in the wake of a report that the company was among those receiving cease-and-desist letters from state regulators.
Worth noting, however, that the letters actually came back in August, and that Sidecar has continued to operate (as have other ride-sharing companies that got similar letters).

Do corporate salespeople need a new type of email? A new start-up says "Yes!"
Yesware came out of stealth mode today, offering a cloud-based email productivity solution for salespeople. It also formally announced a small round of seed funding from Google Ventures and Foundry Group. So I spent some time on the phone with company founder and CEO Matthew Bellows, to understand why salespeople need better apps. What follows is an MOREDan Primack - Sep 27, 2011 11:19 AM ET
How Google Ventures is looking to differentiate itself, and help its companies succeed.
By Brad Coffey, contributor
Back in March, Brian Halligan (our CEO at HubSpot) wrote a great post around his observations on why Sequoia wins at the VC game. Brian's assessment was based on HubSpot's experience raising our Series D and was spot-on. Sequoia is agile, yet disciplined. They are aggressive yet reasonable. They've taken the classic venture capital playbook and MOREJun 22, 2011 12:14 PM ET
