Join us as we bring together the Baltimore startup and tech community to discuss Regulation Crowdfunding with Mike Norman, CEO and Founder of Wefunder.
What is Crowdfunding?
On May 16, Regulation Crowdfunding went live, giving every American- regardless of wealth or income- the opportunity to invest in small companies. A variety of companies, from a local brewery in Austin to a VC backed Bionic Pancreas, are using equity crowdfunding to turn their biggest fans into their most passionate owners.
It’s crowdfunding all grown up.
Equity crowdfunding is like Kickstarter, but instead of donating and recieving a t-shirt, investors are buying debt or equity. Your fans become not emotionally but financially invested in your business.
Who is Wefunder?
Wefunder is the leader of the equity crowdfunding industry. They have raised 6x the amount of their competition and host the two highest issuers: Beta Bionics and Hops and Grain. In just two months they’ve helped small businesses and high-tech startups raise a total of $3 million under Regulation Crowdfunding.
