The amount you can invest in different offerings on the Wefunder platform primarily depends on the specific offering and your status as an accredited investor. Some offerings may have a predetermined minimum and maximum investment. In most Community Rounds, the standard minimum investment is $100.
To determine how much you can invest in any offering on Wefunder, it is important to understand whether you meet the requirements to be considered an accredited investor.
A significant number of the offerings available on Wefunder fall under Regulation Crowdfunding, also known as Reg CF. If you meet the criteria to be an accredited investor, you will not be subject to any investment limits when participating in Reg CF campaigns.
Note: Once you have self-certified yourself (or previously been verified) as an accredited investor on the platform, you are eligible to invest without any restrictions. However, please remember that your self-certification may be randomly selected for audit or questioned, so it is important to provide accurate information. Providing false information is a violation of our terms of service and can lead to the suspension of your account.
If you are a non-accredited investor - which is the case for most investors - the amount you can invest under Regulation Crowdfunding within 12 months depends on your annual income level and net worth. As a non-accredited investor, you have the option to invest the higher of the following:
- $2,500; or
- If your annual income or net worth is less than $124,000, you can invest 5% of the higher value between your annual income or net worth; or
- If both your income and net worth are equal to or greater than $124,000, you can invest 10% of the higher value between your annual income or net worth, with a maximum investment amount of $124,000.
Please note that this investment limit applies to all Reg CF deals. If you invest in Reg CF deals on other platforms, you will need to disclose this information as well (and keep the disclosure updated) so that we can accurately track your limit. It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the relevant figures.
Wefunder will periodically contact you to update this information. However, you can always, and should, as needed, update your disclosures by clicking this link to access your settings and update your disclosures.
Failure to provide accurate and complete information regarding your income, net worth, or previous investments may lead to the cancellation of your investment commitments and the freezing of your account.
