http://techcrunch.com – Another crowd funding startup has entered the mix, and is announcing funding today (which was raised via its own platform, of course). Crowd investing startup Wefunder is announcing a $530,000 seed round from just under 60 investors, over half of whom are unaccredited. Nihal Mehta, Jim Pallotta, Dharmesh Shah, and Bill Warner also participated in the round. Similar to other crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, Wefunder aims to help unaccredited investors put money into startups and ideas they are interested in.
