Smith sees a future in equity crowdfunding for B Corps—both to raise capital and to change the investment world. “It depends on the kind of business you are and the investor you’re looking for, but I think it’s worthwhile as part of the B Corp movement to popularize equity investing through crowdfunding,” he told us. “Equity crowdfunding helps people diversify their portfolios and become more savvy about where their money goes, so they can keep it local or keep it cause-based, and make it more thoughtful. If we’re saying you should be a more thoughtful consumer, you should be a more thoughtful investor too.”
Love seeing why this B Corp chose equity crowdfunding! Our missions are complementary: it's all about thoughtful impact.

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).
