Building Opportunity Gaining Momentum
The Building Opportunity Campaign is off to a strong start this summer! We've had almost 75 investors the campaign in June and July. It's incredible to see the progress and enthusiasm from #BuildingOpportunity supporters. We're having so much fun everyday seeing new investors appear.
Our launch event at the Spheres and innovative approach have gotten fantastic press attention, such as:
Bellwether Housing was named one of 20 nonprofits benefiting from the Amazon match program. That means that Amazon (or Whole Foods) employees who invest by September 30th will have their contribution matched with a 1:1 donation from Amazon.
Thank you so much to our first wave of investors! Your sense of responsibility to our community, to creating affordable housing, and to making our neighborhoods of opportunity accessible to all is truly inspiring.
A special shout out to our Crowdfunding Advisory Committee for all their help getting the campaign launched. We've been busy behind the scenes working on the next phase of promoting the campaign.
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.
Legal May 16th 2016
Wefunder Portal LLC
for 224 startups
Wefunder Advisors LLC
for 98 startups
for 1 startup
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).
