Participant Assistive Products and Shark Wheel, another company raising on Wefunder, are working together to make our wheelchairs even more durable and high performing on rough terrain. We will contract Shark Wheel to create casters for our pediatric wheelchair, which is targeted to lower income countries where surfaces can be challenging. This seems to be a perfect application of the Shark Wheel technology.
Yesterday, Participant co-founder, Dave Calver took his wheelchair, outfitted with a Shark Wheel, to Medellin!
Soon, Participant’s test pilots will be out on the streets testing Shark Wheel in Kenya, Colombia, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Stay tuned for photos!

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).
