Each member of the GiveGo team showed up at AngelHack ready to hustle. They nailed down a great idea early on, started writing code, and stayed up through the night to ship their product.
When we heard they were building a platform for micro-fundraising through personal fitness, we were thrilled they had decided to power it with Singly. Not only was it a profitable, philanthropic idea, it allows for interesting use of our API.
GiveGo – citing that 50% of funds raised for charity runs are spent on overhead – created a way for anyone to gather pledges from friends for their weekly running, biking and walking.
You, as the campaigner, select a charity that you would like to benefit, and as you hit your goals the money your friends pledged will be passed along to the charity. They use Singly for auth, fitness tracking and social sharing.
Congrats to BC, Augustin, Max, Cyrus and Greg on the big win at AngelHack!
