We are excited that we are getting close to this first threshold - we will make it there and, we hope, well beyond!
The Forum was one of 200 buildings in Chicago invited to participate in the 2017 Open House Chicago, the annual festival that invites Chicagoans and visitors to experience unique buildings in Chicago. As part of that program we welcomed over 725 visitors over a 10-hour period and had over 100 of these visitors sign up to stay engaged and/or volunteer to support the Bring Back The Forum initiative, which our Wefunder campaign will support.
The volume, diversity, and enthusiasm of our visitors provides another indication for the broad support for bringing back this iconic structure.
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).
