We're a Public Benefit Corporation and B Corp with a mission to fix capitalism and keep the American dream alive. Our goal is to help get 20,000 more founders off the ground before 2029.
We've funded over $286 million into hundreds of companies: flying cars, rockets, breweries, movie studios, and more. From ostrich farms to startups now worth over $1 billion. In 40 of 50 states.
Full hearts, closed eyes, (the sun was bright but we still )can't lose.
Help more founders take their shot
We have a legal obligation to follow the mission in our Public Benefit Corporation Charter. We are working on spreading the rewards of capitalism more fairly - by funding more deserving founders, backed by their friends and community who believe in what they are doing.
We believe there are tens of thousands of potential founders with unrealized raw potential. They deserve the opportunity to take their shot. We match their dreams with those who can inspire and help them - not just with their funding, but with their mentorship and support.
We want to spread what works in Silicon Valley to the rest of the country. Our team has visited over 40 cities in the past three years, funding startups and small businesses in 40 states.
Besides running a crowdfunding platform, we run a pre-YC accelerator called XX. We've run cohorts for female founders and immigrant founders.
We fly often founders from across America to SF, house them, and organize programs to help get them off the ground. Sometimes, special guests like the founder of Airbnb show up.
With Wefunder Workaway, we fly in idea-stage founders in Hawaii for free and live with them for a week, giving them hands-on mentorship. Our goal is to inspire them on what is possible.
Wefunder covers 100% of health care, dental, and vision. We also offer a 401k plan.
We don't track vacation or personal days. But we do mandate you take at least three weeks off. One of our values is that friends don't let friends burn out!
All-Expense Paid Vacation
Once a year, the team goes somewhere cool, all expenses paid. Previously: Greece, Thailand, Hawaii, Italy, and three train trips across America.
Gym or Rock Climbing Membership
Free memberships at a gym of your choice. We also go rock climbing as a team sometimes!
Classes & Learning
If you can learn something useful, we'll pay for it. Classes don't need to be directly related to your job.
The Equipment You Want
Set up your work station with anything you need.
We'll invest in your next company
If you've worked at least two years, and want to start your own thing, we're happy to be your first investor.
Food & Drinks
Our kitchen is always well stocked with foods and drinks. We often cook each other breakfast and lunch!
3 month sabbatical
After three years of service, get three paid months off.
Tired? Take a nap
We have a few comfortable nap areas. No judgment if you need a quick afternoon nap.
Make friends with awesome founders
A couple times a month, we invite founders to our office home and cook them dinner. We also run S'more Club on Saturdays. It's a great opportunity to make new friends. It's also an excellent way to learn from other founders if you plan to one day start your own company.
We're a small, tight-knit team
We're a team of founder-types, striving to build a great culture where we feel at home. For instance, one of our cultural values is to be insatiably curious - not only with work, but in areas as diverse as kickboxing, neuroscience, or chess. Check out our favorite books!
We also do things that normal startups don't. Three times, the entire company has taken the Amtrak coast to coast, stopping in 12 cities over 10 days, meeting our users face-to-face.
Once a year, we take the Amtrak across America. We've stopped in over 35 cities.

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).
