How does Wunderfund make money?
There is no cost to sign up and view investments. While many Title III funding portals don’t charge any fees to investors, Wunder charges a 2% transaction fee for each investment (up to $75), which is on the high side. Like most funding portals, they also charge the issuer a percentage of the amount raised, typically 6-8%. In other words, the company raising funds may actually receive only 90% of the amount they raise at the end of the campaign.
