In the first week since our
Equity Crowdfunding campaign has launched, we’ve seen incredible demand
and received over $100,000 in investments from 50+ investors.
We're honored to have earned
their trust and asked some of the early investors to share as to why
they decided to invest into EVELO and here’s what they had to say:
“... I decided to invest in
EVELO after extensive research into E-bikes as I am in the market to buy
one. I came across the EVELO line and was impressed by their appearance
and the NuVinci drivetrain. The marketing approach to sell direct to
consumers resonated with me as consumers turn to the internet in ever
higher numbers for their purchases. This year Christmas sales are
expected to be 47% online and I expect this trend will continue to grow
in the future. In summary, both the product and the marketing approach
were the driving factors in making me want to not only own an EVELO, but
also be a shareholder…” - Rick J
“...Living in San Diego, I
have seen traffic increase every year and it keeps getting worse. We
need alternatives in transportation and I believe EVELO can meet that
need…” - Robert H.
“...I am an EVELO customer
thanks to your [staff]. I like my EVELO bike. It is a terrific value
compared to the competitive offerings…” - Moiz B.
“... I bought a couple electric bikes ... now we are more often doing 10-15
miles, getting more exercise in the process. I see huge potential in
this space because of my personal experience, and so when i found
EVELO’s crowdfunding investment I jumped on the opportunity to be part
of a company offering the same experiences I am having…” - James H.
These early investors believe in
the potential of the electric bike industry in North America and EVELO's
ability to become a market leader. They've made individual investments
ranging from $1,000 to $50,000, will become shareholders of the company,
and benefit from the company's growth.
I know you may have questions and
concerns about how this works, given how new this form of Equity
Crowdfunding is, so I encourage you check out the link below and reach
out with any questions you may have.
P.S. You can invest in EVELO
with as little as $1,000 - $2,000. If you invest at a $5,000 level, you
will also get first-preview access to new models and private monthly
investor updates, as well as a complementary Cyclist Accessory Package.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
