Williamson County, Texas
The WilCo Funding Portal, the first initiative developed by the Williamson County Economic Development Partnership, is a locally focused crowdfunding platform that helps startups fund growth through small contributions from many parties.
Crowdfunding is a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family, customers, and individual investors. This approach taps into the collective efforts of a large pool of individuals—primarily online via social media and crowdfunding platforms—and leverages their networks for greater reach and exposure. This type of financing has become a popular tool for young enterprises that might otherwise struggle to secure traditional investment.
Williamson County is the fastest growing county in the USA is home to Dell Computers, National Oilwell Varco, and the Texas Life Science Center. It has been a place for innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit since 1848, and continues the tradition of entrepreneur support with Texas’ only hyper-local crowdfunding website – the WilCo Funding Portal.
