What makes Break the Wheel unique

Our OKRs are impact and investor ROI. With these as our guiding principles we can look at companies that VC would avoid - and structure terms other investors and crowdfunding portals can't.

Highly Selective

Our focus is the outcome. Failed companies can’t impact healthcare or climate change and failed investments lose your trust. We do more than just a market SWOT, we spend time with founders to see how they execute, and manage people and money.

Operational Muscle

We assembled a team of seasoned operators with diverse experiences, networks and backgrounds - as well as tactical teams to fill critical gaps on product, marketing, advertising and sales. We leverage our experts and portal to drive escape velocity scale.

Impact x ROI

Impact for people, ROI for Investors. By having equal weighted OKRs (objectives and key results) our investment thesis changes from companies that need $500 million to scale to women, black, hispanic or vet owned companies that can generate $500 million in revenue with our growth operations support.

How it Works for Investors

Our focus is on the speed and scale of investor returns - from our due diligence processes - to our portfolio deal terms - to our support process post investment.


Get Approved

Applying for an account takes 1 minute. Under the new Jobs Act anyone can invest up to $2,200 per year in companies they believe in. This approval process is mostly to make sure we have you set up for proper investment tracking and payout for liquidity events or dividends.


Analyze & Invest

Review investment opportunity documents. Jump on sector and company analysis calls. Join private social groups or calls for information on company OKRs. Ask questions of each company (We track the responses as part of our ongoing due diligence).


Influence ROI

Where else can you invest in a company you believe in and influence their success? We make it easy for you to help drive revenue, growth and the value of your investment with tools that enable sharing with family, colleagues, friends and social networks, and product and app reviews.

How it Works for Companies

Break the Wheel leverages equity crowdfunding as a powerful tool to provide both capital and customers to entrepreneurs and companies at every stage from idea to hyper growth.

Raise Capital

Build an army of advocates by making current and prospective customers shareholders. It's faster and takes less founder time than raising venture capital. With our reach you also acquire thousands to millions of new customers at the same time saving customer acquisition capital in your next growth phase.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships build a moat around the market and are often the triggers for acquisitions. We connect our portfolio companies to decision makers and operational leaders to build moats and walls with archers and lions to create barriers to entry and growth for competitors.
