My most influential mentor is...
Don't have any mentors (see lack of like minds) but the journalist I look up to most is Denis Roberts, the most sued scribbler in the world. As an investigative journo Roberts was hit with 600+ writs across 30 defamation cases, all brought by the world's largest bank-for-banks, Clearstream. Roberts fought for 10 years to clear his name against some of the best defamation lawyers money can buy, eventually winning at the supreme court, Cour de Cassation, in what he modestly described as a "victory for journalism."

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
