How willpate started their t-shirt journey


VenCorps is a community for discovering, funding and growing startup companies. We connect founders, funders and facilitators together in a community of interest: startup success.

We count on the wisdom of the crowds to nominate, rate and choose startups to win a 50k investment. We count on the participation of crowds to assist grow those startups and help entrepreneurs reach success.

Over a hundred years ago Mr. Spencer Trask helped change the world by funding Thomas Edison’s lightbulb. The investment firm he inspired has continued to change the world by funding the first human genome company, the first stem cell company, the first optical integrated circuit company, and the first AIDS vaccine research. In the last 15 years Spencer Trask & Co. has launched start-ups attracting more than $4 billion. Soon we will launch VenCorps to fix how companies get funded and grow.
