Round of the Week – Wefunder

WEFUNDER

One of the upstarts in the crowdinvesting space, Wefunder has reportedly raised a $500K round this week.  Similar to the AngelLists of the world, Wefunder is a crowdinvesting platform that allows almost anyone to invest in promising companies.  What type of companies you ask?  Well, you have your run of the mill tech/hardware startups and then there’s the Flying Cars company.  Seriously, one of the most successfully funded projects to date for them is Terrafugia, a flying car startup with $30M in preorders to boot.
