Funding for your business
This December, we’re trekking across America to find companies with great stories - tech startups, restaurants, boutiques, breweries, ostrich farms, and more.
We'll be in Chicago on December 13!
Here’s the plan
We're visiting 100 businesses on our cross-country trip and finding the best to feature on Wefunder!
Help us save the American Dream
In 2012, Wefunder helped pass the JOBS Act, a new law that allows businesses to raise funding online.
After 80 years, it is now legal for everyday Americans (not just the rich or banks) to invest in local businesses.
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.
Legal May 16th 2016
Wefunder Portal LLC
for 574 startups
Wefunder Advisors LLC
for 152 startups
for 3 startups
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).
Wefunder is a Public Benefit Corporation.
We’re here to fix capitalism.
