Nevada’s premier tech accelerator, X Co, is partnering with Wefunder, the country's first and largest crowdfunding platform.

Startups that join X Co’s R.E.A.L. program - short for “Rapid Entrepreneurial Acceleration Launch,” will eventually launch on Wefunder’s platform, which includes a community of 1.03 million investors.

“The democratization of new investment opportunities, regulatory frameworks, and access to previously unobtainable opportunities like early stage startup investments is groundbreaking. And as a leading edge startup accelerator, it is right in line with our mission of innovation,” says Shaunt M. Sarkissian, Founder and Executive Chairman of X Co. “The platform, team, and truly effective regulatory operations at We Funder were by far the best. And this made a partnership a no brainer.”

Currently X Co’s Alumni company, PersonaFi, an online community for retail investing, has enjoyed success on We Funder, raising $349,000 in only a few weeks.

"Wefunder is extremely stoked to be working with the X Co team in creating a more robust investment process for startups within our communities to raise capital. The expertise and raw talent X Co looks for in their founders made it an extremely easy decision to partner with them,” says Adie Akuffo-Afful, Director of Partnerships. “We look forward to a long partnership with Shaunt, Cameron, and the rest of the X Co family as we begin this journey."

Wefunder is the nation's leading investment crowdfunding platform, with the mission to revive the American dream. The platform helped hundreds of companies raise over $304M from fans. Wefunder companies have gone on to raise over $5B in venture capital. The company is also a Public Benefit Corporation and B Corp, with the goal of helping 20,000 founders get off the ground by 2029
