Stuart S. Shapiro, Night Flight’s Founder and CEO said:

“I was the luckiest man on earth to be part of the Night Flight journey in 1981 when it first launched on The USA Network. Since that first broadcast, I have always believed that Night Flight was more than just a TV show and series. Night Flight was a beacon and lifeline to millions of a generation in the 1980s who believed that there was a world of discovery out there waiting to be found. Night Flight revealed something different from what was surrounding them in the land of the mundane and the puppetry of the mainstream.”

“With the success and support of Night Flight’s crowdfunding campaign, we can continue to grow and expand our digital universe to become the major network of discovery, providing music, film, video and cultural cutting edge entertainment that isn’t available anywhere else.”

WeFunder has already funded over a hundred startups since inception. Today, they are the leader of the pack when it comes to crowdfunding companies, both in the number of deals and the most money in aggregate.

Equity crowdfunding is an evolving sector of fundraising that has only been accessible to the general public for the past year or so, ever since the passage of the JOBS Act (or, the Jumpstart Our Business Start-Ups Act), the same law that also established investment crowdfunding, making it possible for ordinary people to make small contributions and investments in small companies.

WeFunder — founded in 2012 by serial entrepreneurs Nick Tommarello, Mike Norman, and Greg Belote, and currently based in both San Francisco, California, and in Cambridge, Massachusetts — has been in business since Regulation Crowdfunding went into effect and have helped more than sixty companies pull in over $18 million.

CEO Nick Tommarello says: “‘Kickstarter for investing’ was legalized on May 16th, 2016: now, anyone can invest $100 in a startup or local business. Since then, we have become the largest Regulation Crowdfunding platform, larger than all of our competitors combined. We’ve been preparing since 2012, when we helped pass the JOBS Act that made this all possible, and were invited by Congress to watch it signed into law in the Rose Garden.”
