About Us

When You Wish is built and maintained by small team in Venice, CA. We are an ensemble of friends, entrepreneurs, investors, designers, developers, and recovering corporate lawyers seeking to help change the world by promoting a new form of investment where ordinary people—instead of entrenched capital—have the opportunity to invest in the ideas and causes that will propel tomorrow.

We are mentored by our incredible board of trusted advisors: John Mackey (CEO, Whole Foods), Zelda Marzec (Los Angeles-based investment advisor), Charlie Annenberg (Philanthropist, Annenberg Foundation), Drew Nicholson(Intel Corporation), and Carl Esposti (crowdsourcing.org).
