About Wefunder

We're the Robinhood for pre-IPO startups. We allow everyone to invest $100 in a startup they love.

Over the past five years, we've helped fund over 900 startups with $500m – including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures.

We’re now doubling the size of our team to handle the growth. Trying to keep up!

We’re also a public benefit corporation with a mission of saving the American Dream (https://wefunder.com/charter). Our aim is to sprinkle the Silicon Valley fairy dust across the rest of the country, which often don’t have the same opportunities we take for granted.

About the role

We allow everyday people to invest in the startups they love!

Wefunder is the largest funding platform connecting founders with their community. Over the past few years, we've helped fund over 900 pre-IPO startups with $450M+, from early-stage moonshots to unicorns.
