While some updates are more cheerful than others, I am writing today to share with you the passing of my grandfather last week. He taught me what entrepreneurship was at a very young age, and I grew up watching him and my grandmother run a very successful jewelry business that they had together for over 50 years.
Besides being an entrepreneurial inspiration, successful business owner and encourager of all things adventurous, he was a Navy Dive Bomber in WWII. My love of skydiving, Texas BBQ and having my own businesses, among other things, definitely came from him. I was able to get to Texas and spend his final days with him and my family.
I have decided to dedicate this expansion in Nashville to him, and more than ever, am so grateful to you all for being part of making this happen. I will be putting a plaque in his memory inside of the property.

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).
