I’ve been a little quiet the last few days trying to figure out the best way to address what is going on. My friend Emily, also a fellow event and hospitality professional said it very well:
"COVID-19, in addition to eliciting fear of becoming sick, and spreading illness; has wreaked catastrophic havoc on the hospitality industry, virtually overnight, hitting literal home base for me and the majority of my closest buddies.
To my lovely friends, colleagues, and fellow citizens of the world, in this time of global uncertainty, I say: I know it sucks right now, and things are kind of scary, but, trust — this will not last forever.
In the meantime, I encourage you to be smart, be well, find ways to laugh, continue to invest in tourism and local business wherever possible, and above all, attempt to be the person who eases the anxiety of another.
We are all in this together, and we will prevail."
While the dessert side of my business in LA is currently in the middle of rescheduling and offering gift cards for future events, I also encourage anyone looking to support small businesses to invest in this expansion in Nashville. We are very close to getting this off the ground, and what a great way to celebrate when this is all over by having a place to come together and have fun?!
Plus, we are still in DOUBLE payback term for a short while longer. They are almost gone!
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.

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).
