Wefunder offers a contact section with email address for support that we have seen responses come back on. We understand that once a campaign has been launched Wefunder will open a line of communication. We look forward to learning your experiences in the comments. They are based in San Francisco.

History

Founded in 2011 by Greg Belote, Mike Norman, and Nick Tommarello. They started by offering Reg D filings. The team went through YCombinator and leverage the network to help fund many graduates of the program.

Regulation A+ campaigns are for more mature companies looking to raise up to $50 million. This incurs public filing requirements.

Minimums

They allow investments starting from $100-$500, unlike the minimum threshold of $1000 by  many equity crowdfunding platforms.
