We're Robinhood for pre-IPO startups. Everyone can invest $100.
Wefunder is like Robinhood for pre-IPO startups. We're the largest funding platform that helps normal people make investments in startups they love. Over the past few years, we've helped fund over 900 startups with $450M+ including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and cancer cures.
Now, we’re expanding to Europe and looking for a Head of EU to lead our European team. We aim to sprinkle the Silicon Valley fairy dust across the world. Our goal is to inspire 20,000 more founders to get started, encourage them to think bigger, hone their pitch, help them focus, and give them the funding they need to prove to the "normals" in the world that they are not crazy (or, at least, crazy in a lucrative way).
We launched in the US in 2012. Four years later the laws rolled out allowing us to operate, but it took until 2021 for them to be reformed to be workable. Luckily, the EU just rolled out new laws that are as good as the current US laws, so there’s a lot of potential to scale quickly. However, it’ll take an organized effort from the EU launch team to build the momentum and convince the best EU companies to raise with us. We’re looking for someone who will thrive in this type of environment & inspire a team to do the same.

On May 16, 2016, it became legal for regular people to invest as little as $100 in startups and small businesses. Since then, we have become the largest equity crowdfunding platform. We've helped hundreds of startups and small businesses – including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and potential Ebola cures – raise millions of dollars.
We're a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We're reversing these trends by funding more deserving businesses across all of America, not solely tech startups in Silicon Valley.
Want to help? Join us! We're a team of founder types: enjoy autonomy, responsibility, the opportunity to learn, and no red tape. Just make it happen.
