RE Crowdfunding Acquisitions vs. LP/ GP Acquisitions?

Is there any major difference across CRE acquisitions roles amongst crowdfunding (crowdstreet, fundrise, realtyMogul. Etc) and a traditional LP/ GP acquisitions shop? Specially from a long term growth perspective?

Would be great if anyone could share thoughts on deal types, experience, comp amongst the two (considering you get slightly lower cash comp, but stock in these crowdfunding platforms)

I'm curious to see others' opinions. I think in general the trend in many different asset classes - including real estate - is retail capital. It's just a lot easier to raise retail capital than it was 10-15 years ago. Look at some of the private REITs being raised by the likes of Blackstone and Starwood. There's just a massive amount of capital that is being raised by retail investors right now. Five years ago, I viewed crowdfunding as potentially being an existential threat to REPE. I'm not so sure anymore. Seems like a lot of them have found a particular niche, but broadly they aren't making a massive impact in the market (at least from what I've seen). So, my opinion is that quality investors that can raise retail capital will be very successful, whether they are a "crowdfunding platform" or a more traditional REPE firm.
