Wefunder Crowdfunding Enters Final MonthMarch 29, 2018
It is down to the wire with LPPFusion’s critical equity crowdfunding campaign on the Wefunder website. The campaign will end April 23, so it has entered its last month. So far, a bit over $640,000 has been invested by just under 300 investors. The campaign is right on target in terms of getting just over $2,000 per investor, but now lags behind LPPFusion’s goal as to the number of investors. To reach our ultimate goal of $1 million we still need nearly 200 more investors in the final month. Generally about 20% of investors come in during the last two weeks of the campaign, but to reach our goal we should be getting in nearly half a dozen investors per day from now on.
The key problem is getting more people to know about the campaign. Overall, nearly one person in eight who views our video on the Wefunder site invests, so we know we are getting our message across to those who visit. But far too few people are visiting. To address this problem, Director of Communications Ivy Karamitsos is launching an advertising campaign through social media. In addition, we hope that some press attention will result from Chief Scientist Lerner’s recent publication. But we also need the help of everyone who supports the Focus Fusion effort to share information about the Wefunder campaign as widely as possible in this critical final month. Please help us make our goal!
