Wefunder invested over $120 million into hundreds of incredibly diverse startups: flying cars, robots, artificial pancreases, breweries, movie studios, and more. From ostrich farms to unicorns now worth over $1 billion. In 40 of 50 states.
Our goal is to invest in dreams — we believe that the best way to drive change is by creating more founders that dare to think big enough. And we exist to support these founders by helping them get funded. This is why we are hiring a City Partner.
Our dream candidate is a young, scrappy and hungry individual that wants to spend the next six months grinding in a big city of their choice to spot these talented founders and help them get funded through Wefunder. You likely just came out of college, or a crazy adventure, and you are looking to spend your next few months learning about startups, investing, and relationships.
You should see this role as a challenge — a way for you to grow as an individual. We believe experience is overvalued. What we are looking for is someone willing to put the hours in to get stuff done, and who enjoys the hustle. You're a self-starter. A founder.
Things you will do
You are going to work directly with our director of fundraising to build something from nothing in a city of your choice. You have six months to make it happen.
You will find every single rockstar founder in the city, and help them get funded. Every founder sees fundraising as a painful, time-consuming job that must be done. Wefunder is changing that. We help companies get funded more quickly, by their most loved customers. This is a powerful pitch. Your role is to make sure the startup community knows about it, and drive the Wefunder growth that will follow.
We praise hungry people with purpose. You need to be willing to learn with humility, and care enough about founders to always do what's right for them. Be that, and we'll help you learn the things you don't know.

On May 16, 2016, it became legal for regular people to invest as little as $100 in startups and small businesses. Since then, we have become the largest equity crowdfunding platform. We've helped 808 startups and small businesses – including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures – raise $355,962,579.
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.
Wefunder supports three different federal laws that allow startups to raise money legally. To comply with the law, Wefunder Advisors LLC and Wefunder Portal LLC (both owned by Wefunder Inc) also list startups depending on the regulation used.

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).
