LPPFusion has initiated a third crowdfunding capital campaign through the Wefunder website. Our public start is 6:00 PM EST, today, Thursday, March 4. As in previous campaigns, this offering is open to all investors. But in contrast to earlier campaigns, there are no limits on the number of investors who may buy our shares. Since we don’t have to worry about such limits, LPPFusion has reduced the minimum investment to just one share at a price of $150. We expect that this reduction, from the previous minimum of $1000, will make it possible for far more people to invest in a fusion future.
In the new campaign, Wefunder is setting up a custodial entity which will hold the legal title to the shares as a single shareholder, while the new investors will be the “beneficial” shareholders who get the financial benefits. This is the same as having a broker or fund buying shares on your behalf—they are the legal holders but not the beneficial owners.
To explain our project, LPPFusion Director of Communication Ivy Karamitsos has prepared new versions of our videos, which are viewable on the Wefunder website.
We ask all our readers to visit the Wefunder site and consider investing. The minimum investment is less than we all saved by not being able to eat out for two or three nights. We have set $200,000 as our minimum goal which we hope to reach swiftly. Our maximum, set by current SEC regulation is $1 million, but after March 15 that cap will be lifted. The campaign is currently expected to run through the coming year, with LPPFusion able to periodically draw on the money invested to fund our research. We need many thousands of people to know about it, so please help us by spreading the word on your favorite social media, by telling friends and co-workers—or by shouting it from the rooftops!
