Fun news to share! I spent last Friday at a local high school with their Business Management and Entrepreneurship class. First, how cool that this is even a class?! My college degree is this exact title and it was brand new at the time - for a college!
The class actually creates 3 or 4 businesses by the end of the semester and even got
involved with Google last year! I shared my journey as an entrepreneur and answered a ton of questions they had.
They brought ENERGY and it was so inspiring to be around. It was also really exciting to share how I'm raising capital for my growing business in a new, ground-breaking way in this wild evolving world of business. They had all heard of Go Fund Me and Kickstarter, but had no idea something like Wefunder existed! We compared this process to the show Shark Tank and that got them really excited. Even the teacher was impressed!
Ready for a busy week ahead! Thankful for the opportunities to be a resource and give insight to others.

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).
