Newsflash: We are extremely happy to announce that we’ve officially launched FundRazr
FundRazr is the easiest way to collect money and manage members online. We think of it as fast acting pain relief from fundraising and fee collection headaches. It’s a Facebook application that can be installed and set up within minutes and we think it’s sexy, savvy and super useful.
Yes it’s 7:30am and this moment has been a long time coming. It’s been made even more challenging by having to be in stealth mode, as one of just 100 companies launching today at the TechCrunch50 demopit in San Francisco, where the exclusive closed beta version of FundRazr is being released.
What does this mean? Well it’s a huge platform on which to launch to the technology industry’s most influential venture capitalists, corporations, angel investors, fellow entrepreneurs and the international media. It also means we get one day to go crazy on creating buzz for our application, our company, our team and our future.
What’s more we are even more excited to announce that we are fully integrated with the new Adaptive Payments API from PayPal X, PayPal’s payments platform.
In a stroke of luck, karma and great timing, we were invited in June to participate in the closed beta program for PayPal X as one of just a handful of companies. We’ve built the Fundrazr application on PayPal’s Adaptive Payments API. Being part of the beta program has allowed us to use these amazing new features in our FundRazr application prior to the official launch of PayPal X on November 3-4, 2009 in San Francisco.
It’s been one amazing journey and more so this last month as we’ve ramped up our development, design, testing and promotion efforts to make this launch day count. For a small team I’ve never seen such amazing commitment and dedication to and unparalleled work ethic before. It’s just awesome.
Our entire journey from an inception over a coffee table to present day is featured in this blog. Or you can just watch our pitch video that got us a place in the demopit at TechCrunch50 validating why we think FundRazr is set to change the game of fundraising and payments in social networks.
