Is it Possible To Raise Capital For a Venture Capital Fund Using Reg A+ ?

Can I use Regulation A+ to raise capital for a VC Fund?

Venture Capital Funds that use 60% or more in simple debt and 40% or less in equity holdings, can raise capital through Reg A+. And they can raise more than the $50 mill per year by segmenting their investing target market by geographic regions, establishing one separate entity per region, it is then possible to make multiple $50 mill offerings for one parent company. Each offering must be a separate entity.

For example, let's say a VC Fund establishes six regions of the US with an Inc or an LLC owning each region ie a subsidiary for each. The parent company can then raise capital for each region using a dedicated Reg A+ for each. In this example, the maximum per year would be 6x50 = $300 million per year.
