Wefunder is like "Kickstarter for investing". We've helped fund 160 startups and small businesses, including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures. Every company we've funded is full of amazing stories. Check out our 2016 results video.
We're a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We're reversing these trends by funding more deserving businesses across all of America, not solely tech startups in Silicon Valley.
Want to help? Join us! We're a team of founder types: enjoy autonomy, responsibility, the opportunity to learn, and no red tape. Just make it happen.
We all took Amtrak across America: 12 cities, 14 days. And we didn't kill each other!
We're in the heart of SF, overlooking downtown

We offer the usual perks
Wefunder covers 100% of health care, dental, and vision. We also offer a 401k plan.
All-Expense Paid Vacation
We're all big on travel and adventure. There's unlimited vacation days. Also, once a year, the team goes somewhere exotic, all expenses paid. (Previously: Greece, Thailand, Hawaii, & Italy)
Transport & Parking
There's free parking at our office, and we re-imburse up to $200 a month in Uber or Lyft.
Gym or Rock Climbing Membership
Free memberships at 24 Hour Fitness or Mission Cliffs; both a short walk from the office.
Classes & Conferences
Take professional development classes and conferences on us. Always be learning, they say.
Food & Drinks
Our kitchen is always well stocked with tasty foods and drinks. We often cook each other breakfast and lunch! Would it be inappropriate the mention the martini bar?
Set up your work station with all the fancy equipment you need. That 5k iMac is going to make you more productive, right?
Tired? Take a nap
Roof deck hammocks and bunk beds!
Plus, meet lots of cool people
Every Wednesday, we invite our friends to dinner - some of the most talented founders in SF - and feed them steak and scotch. It's a great opportunity to make new friends.
We're a small, tight-knit team
We really like working together. We inspire each other to learn, not only just work-wise, but in topics as diverse as kick-boxing, neuroscience, and chess. We're all curious and hungry. We work hard, but that doesn't mean it needs to feel like work.
