About the role

We help everyday people to invest in the startups they love.

Wefunder helps everyday people invest in the startups they love. In 2021, regulatory reform put Community Rounds on the map - and since then, we’ve helped thousands of startups raise money from their customers and community. To date, we have helped 3,000 startups raise over $700 million in capital.

We’re a team of founder types. Your potential matters more than your background or experience; we’re the company where you can take your shot. Everyone is here to learn and grow, to work on a meaningful product, and to fix capitalism. We’ve spent years lobbying congress to fix the law, and in turn, created this industry.
