We created this industry in 2012. We’ve helped the most founders build successful businesses.

Why Founders
Love Us

"Invaluable Exposure"
"Wefunder saved us"
"changed our future"
"feels like family"
"so easy to raise"
“You have this network of people who are literally invested in your company... And if I tell them about any new product, they will tell everyone they know. It’s incredible. It’s invaluable exposure.”
JOSH HARE, CEO OF HOPS & GRAIN
Raised $1M+ on Wefunder

Why Wefunder instead of venture capital?

Actually, do both. Even VC-funded startups should raise from fans.

One Line on Cap Table

Easy logistics. All investors invest in one fund.

Raise on Silicon Valley terms

Don’t get screwed by local 'angels'.

Delay giving VCs 20% of your company

VCs will tell you 20%+ is "standard". Why?

Get traditional investors to move faster

FOMO kicks in when Wefunder investors act.

Keep control of your company

Don’t let the suits fire you.

Increase your revenue

When customers are owners, they buy more.

Recruit more awesome hires

Your investors are likely to know candidates.

Your own marketing and lobbying army

Investors spread the word and fight for you.

Spend less time persuading investors

Customers already grok the value you offer.

Rewarding fans is the right thing to do

Those who believe in you should get rich too.

OUR COMMUNITY OF FOUNDERS IS AS VALUABLE AS THE MONEY

The Wefunder mafia has your back when times are tough. They’ll also intro you to that key person who can help.

Exclusive invites to fireside chats with veteran founders

Once we have a vaccine, Wefunder will again host invite-only intimate events for alumni. Our guests have built billion-dollar startups and know a thing or two.

Built by founders for founders

We're not VCs, bankers, broker/dealers, sharks, or finance bros. We are fellow founders. We get it. We’re on your side.

We’re driven to help more founders take their shot - to dare to go against the grain and try something new. We believe wealth is created not by VCs or bankers, but by the scrappy and hungry who put it all on the line, who through sheer force-of-will try to move the universe a smidgen in a better direction. Win or fail, our society benefits.
