WiPROSPER is an equity crowd investing platform that puts your investment together with funds from other investors. We then launch and grow Black-owned business ventures.
Like many entrepreneurs, our founders Will and Monte’ decided to build the solution they were looking for. As a startup founder, Will was searching for funding to scale his company. Hearing “You have a great brand, but we won’t invest” enough times, he turned to friends, family, and colleagues, a model that proved to be successful.
Monte’ proposed the idea of a platform where small investments could be pooled together and together they then proved that Black-owned companies to can thrive with the proper financial backing. What soon became clear was that there was untapped potential – other business ventures waiting to be started, operated, and profitable.
