Everyone with internet access will have no trouble thinking of a time they had a question to ask, or an opinion to express, but didn’t know where to start. With so many social networks at their fingertips, users are constantly bombarded with real-time updates and information. However for the most part, this information is usually unqualified, irrelevant and swayed by popular trends. With the help of WeGather, users all over the world are engaging in more meaningful discussions with experts, enthusiasts and others who share their interests – as well as those who don’t.  

WeGather delivers content creation and fan-funding together, grouped into one service that remunerates users (especially experts), for contributing high quality, informed content and driving discussions with their peers. Validated discussion leaders can earn through tips and donations from their followers and fans as well as by hosting pay-to-access discussions. These discussions fall under umbrella communities such as fitness, business, relationships, politics and more, in which interested users can connect with experts in their respective fields of interest. By going against the grain of populist content or viral trends, WeGather facilitates an environment that prioritises professionalism. After over two years of tech development and optimisation, WeGather has secured over 100,000 users, with over 50,000 app installs.

WeGather prides itself on providing a democratized platform for civil discussion that gives consumers a channel where they can have the courage to speak out about the things that matter to them. From current affairs, to beauty, to diversity and inclusion, the platform encompasses an array of topical real-time forums in which users can interact and share opinions freely. In essence, it functions as a collection of group chat rooms that won’t get lost in the jumble of the internet or be eclipsed by the newest pop culture phenomenon. In addition to searching topics of interest, users can also view, follow and financially support the profiles of others that share their interests, in the spirit of healthy and open communication. While a source of information for those looking to learn more, WeGather is also a draw for researchers and experts willing to impart their knowledge. A number of reputable experts have already joined the platform, including the South African Constitutional Court Judge Dennis David, Indian Entrepreneur and bestselling author Dev Gadvhi and Olympic track and field champion James Howell.

Recently, WeGather has garnered significant positive media attention, as a number of high profile influencers have publicly left WeGather’s main competitor Patreon, due to its “proclivity to censor” users for vocally expressing right wing political ideologies. Communicating openly with their hundreds of thousands of social media followers, these new WeGather users have been very vocal in expressing support of the platform’s mission to encourage people to spark meaningful discussion, no matter what their opinions, in a politically divided, digital world.
