Giveo Targets Charity Fundraising

Boulder-based Giveo said today that it has launched a new, software platform targeted at helping charities raise money through social networking. According to Giveo, its platform helps charities take advantage of social media to "crowd-source" their fundraising efforts. Giveo said its two products are CrowdGiver, focused on cause-marketing, and GiveoCharity, a social fundraising product. The new firm is headed by Ed Messman--most recently at HiveLive--and backed by angel investors.
