Whenever the stock's market value is greater than the option price, the option is said to be "in the money." Conversely, if the market value is less than the option price, the option is said to be "out of the money," or "under water."

Series A round of financing is generally done when company is generating some revenue, though it might not be net profit. The risk involved is at the highest in this round of funding.

It may sound like cheating, but it's perfectly legal. Outside investors, however, generally frown upon the practice -- after all, they have no repricing opportunity when the value of their own shares drops.

If Congress passes the Fix Crowdfund Act, for Regulation Crowdfunding offerings, we will reduce the up-front 7% investor fee, and also charge carried interest. This aligns our incentives with those who invest on our platform: we only make money when they do.

The SEC and FINRA can always decide to impose more burdensome regulations in the future. There is a big risk that our growth will be constrained because of ineffective, counter-productive regulations that increase risk to investors, and increase the cost burden on businesses that choose Regulation Crowdfunding.
We've always knew that we were competing with AngelList and FundersClub in the short-term (although we didn't expect it would take 9 years for the SEC to implement Regulation Crowdfunding!). For the past four years, we've kept true to our vision of a more "Kickstarter" vibe, designed to appeal to and educate non-professionals on how to invest, where anyone can invest as little as $655 in both startups and small businesses. Our competitors - even those who started because of the JOBS Act - iterated more and more towards the accredited market.

Companies care about "signaling"
Finally, working with credible companies is a virtuous cycle. High-quality companies want to be funded alongside other high-quality companies.
During times of stock market volatility, a company may reprice its options, allowing employees to exchange underwater options for ones that are in the money. For example, if options were originally exercisable at $55, and the stock's market price dropped to $85, the company could cancel the first option grant and issue new options exercisable at the new $85 share price.
Investment clubs let groups of experts create their own "Wefunder in a box", hosted on Wefunder, and get an economic incentive to do so. It's a little like a "group syndicate". Only instead of one tech celebrity like on AngelList, it's composed of a group of experts in a particular industry. Some examples could be artificial intelligence, bio-tech, agriculture, or Chicago restaurants.
