WealthForge has built automated transaction processing technology that allows issuers raising private capital to incorporate our Invest Button directly onto an existing website, giving investors the ability to view offering documents, provide accreditation information and transfer funds into an escrow account, all in one FINRA and SEC compliant process.

The issuer dashboards provide real-time visibility into platform activity, including where each investor is in the process and when an investment has been made, allowing you to keep an eye on the status of your raise at all times.


It’s a small community and everyone is accessible by a phone call, from advice to new connections. I think our community is pretty well connected
