Bitcoin Venture Capital Funding - CoinDesk

Big for bitcoin? VC fund only dealing in BTC

A friend of mine is in the process of conceptualizing a venture capital firm that runs on bitcoin. He has tried explaining it to me a few times, I just don't quite understand it. What I get:
The firm is funded, with U.S. currency,
They plan to invest exclusively in Bitcoin related start-ups.
They invest Bitcoin, not U.S. dollars.
What I don't get:
He said regular people will be able to invest in the fund but they must use bitcoin to buy in.
He says they have a way to circumvent this, using bitcoins and some talk about an alternate coin that is numerically proportional to the companies amount of stock. Saying that the ownership of the alt-coin is similar to the owenership of the company stock. If you own 1% of the altcoins, you own 1% of the corporation but can remain anonymous.
I told him he is probably breaking a ton of laws and that I don't understand how the alt coins relate to ownership. Am I the only one who doesn't get how this would work? He reads reddit so I'm hoping he doesn't see my post because! I would really like to go back to him with more information and be able to converse on the idea.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Analysis of "Bitcoin is the Internet in 1995"

With all the hairsplitting about inflation in the last thread we sort of lost the forest for the trees. A few points of comparison: 1) Bitcoin VC funding is ROUGHLY on par with internet VC funding in 1995 (or maybe 1994, who cares?) 2) The internet experienced exponential growth in users from 1995-2000 (16 million to 360 million source: http://www.virginia.edu/virginia/archive/webstats.html) 3) Amazon, eBay and Craigslist all launched in 1995
Will Coinbase, Circle and Bitpay make bitcoin as useful to the average Joe as online retailers did for the internet 20 years ago? Will sidechains become the JAVAScript of bitcoin, allowing much more functionality? Are there other analogies that can be made between the early internet and present state of bitcoin?

Clarification: Is a centralized, VC funded, for-profit company really influencing Bitcoin protocol code by hiring core developers, or is that FUD?

This is kind of going back to the basics here, but I just need to hear some intelligent responses.
Has a for-profit company hired some of the most influential Bitcoin developers and put them on payroll?
Is that company being allowed to influence Bitcoin protocol development in any way, shape or form as part of having hired core developers?
I have heard this but I struggle to understand whether it's complete nonsense. But if so, how in a million years, did such a massive conflict of interest become "okay" ? How is that not in direct opposition to Bitcoin's most important traits?
Of course the other alternative is, a centralized for-profit VC funded company is not influencing Bitcoin protocol development in any way, shape or form. And that would really put me at ease.
But I just wanted to clarify, and ask this straight out for my own understanding. This is either a massive bastardization of the entire point of bitcoin, or its complete FUD and I'd like to hear why.
