We're a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to fix capitalism. We want to help fund 20,000 more founders to take their shot, backed by those who believe in them.

Startups are hard; most fail. Investing in them is risky. Never invest more than you can afford to lose. Do it to support the people you believe in, not because you think you'll make lots of money.

Wefunder is a new kind of stock market

Unlike the NASDAQ, we’re meant for startups and small businesses. What’s the difference?

It's much riskier

Never invest more than you can afford to lose. Startups are hard. Even the best founders fail.

Zero-sum game
Win big or lose all

Startups win big or go bankrupt. Consider investing in them more like socially-good lottery tickets.

Hold for the long term

When it works, it takes a long time to earn a return. Expect to hold for years.

The best angel investors invest to also have an impact. Sure, they want to earn a return. But, unlike investing in Apple, you can actually help these companies succeed.

I felt this was a chance for small-town America to show it's still possible to survive. To be part of something in my own community, for the benefit of my friends and neighbors. People used to get together to help a neighbor build a barn - this is the same kind of thing.
