What does a Lead Investor do for me?

The Lead Investor:

1. Gets to know the company and decides if they want to invest on the same terms as those offered on Wefunder.

2. Helps the founder grow their startup, with advice, connections, and mentorship. They only make a profit if the startup grows in value.

3. Directs the signing of documents on behalf of all investors on Wefunder, such as SAFEs converting to equity, follow-on financing authorizations, acquisitions, or any other corporate action. These are the same documents a Lead signs for their personal investment.

Note that Wefunder does not endorse the views or activities of any Lead Investor and our approval of a Lead Investor does not constitute an investment recommendation.
