The Jared Kushner-backed real estate investment platform Cadre is looking to raise $65 million in venture funding.

The funds, if raised, would give Cadre a valuation of more than $800 million, the Information reported.

The startup, founded in 2015 by Blackstone Group alum Ryan Williams and Joshua and Jared Kushner, has already raised around $68 million from investors including Alibaba’s Jack Ma, former Vornado Realty Trust exec Michael Fascitelli and Island Capital Group’s Andrew Farkas.

Cadre also landed a $250 million credit line from George Soros’ family office, as The Real Deal first reported in January.

Cadre acts as a real estate crowdfunding platform for high-net-worth individuals. The company will invest in commercial real estate deals using the credit line, and then make them available to investors online through its members-only platform. The company has been coy about disclosing what and how many deals it participated in.
