WeTheCitizens has raised $1.5 million in its fourth round of investor financing ($3 million in total investor financing). All monies raised have come from individual sources, including prominent members of the Atlanta business and technology communities.
WeTheCitizens’ Wildfire platform, officially launched in July 2008, drives real-world action through online networks, helping volunteers and/or donors to collectively self-organize in support of cause-oriented organizations.
“Our ability to raise $3 million can be attributed to the Wildfire’s strong business case and the quality of the platform’s development,” said Caleb Clark, CEO of WeTheCitizens. “Every day we are speaking with cause-oriented organizations seeking to leverage the power of social networks to communicate with, mobilize and track the actions of their supporters. As more and more people look to the Internet as the preferred means of interacting with the organizations they support, the value that Wildfire provides will continue to grow.”
Atlanta based WeTheCitizens is the creator of the Wildfire Social Mobilization Platform, which drives real-world action through online networks, helping volunteers to collectively self-organize in support of cause-oriented organizations.
Founded in 2005, WeTheCitizens uses its Web 2.0-based technology to connect supporters (volunteers or donors) to causes using social networking principles, mobilize them with Wildfire’s Custom Actions, and score and rank each individual’s contribution with its patent-pending Personal Impact Engine.
