MassChallenge and What’s Up at GoodTwo

May 9, 2011

This weekend, we got the great news that GoodTwo has advanced to Round 2 in MassChallenge!

We owe everyone who voted for us and supported us throughout Round 1 a big THANK YOU. If you haven’t had a chance to check us out and endorse us yet, there’s still time–they’re still counting endorsements as we head into Round 2, where we’re presenting to a panel of judges. Here’s how to do it!

I thought this might be a good time to give everyone an update on what’s been going on behind the scenes at GoodTwo. You may have noticed the blog’s been a little quiet as we get up and running. We’ve been busy getting off the ground and getting some amazing fundraiser partnerships rolling, but as we move into the summer, there’s a renewed sense of blog accountability here at GoodTwo.

Our goals for the GoodTwo blog are two-fold. As a startup on the Boston scene, we’re looking to share our journey, lessons learned and ideas with the Boston business community. We’d also like to become a resource for our fundraising clients. We travel around the nonprofit world quite a bit and hear about a lot of different fundraising initiatives. We have our own opinions and ideas too. Sometimes, we just want to lay out how you can amp up your GoodTwo campaign. Fundraisers: add this blog to your reader or roster. We plan to have some resources for you as we move forward, and we’ll keep you in the loop about updates and initiatives from GoodTwo that might help you fundraise.

So where do we stand today? Since our launch in December, we’ve seen an incredible amount of support for the GoodTwo idea from both investors and fundraisers. We are bringing some HUGE organizations onto the platform in the next week or so, and we’ll keep you updated as they go live. We have also seen some great progress with local fundraisers, like this one from Hands On Miami. We’re live with local deals all over New England, in New York and New Jersey, Miami, and Los Angeles. More cities are coming soon, but in the meantime we have some great online deals so that really, anyone in the country can run a GoodTwo fundraiser.

We are making some platform updates that will completely automate the GoodTwo process for fundraisers, also coming in the next week or two. This means you’ll have complete control over any fundraiser you’re running, with the ability to control content, goals or deals in real time at any time. We’ll announce it as soon as those new features are live.

All in all, we’re pumped about the splash we’ve made in the fundraising world in just a couple of short months. We’ve even managed to swing inclusion in a few blog posts and news articles. If you just can’t get enough of us, check us out on:

Plus, we were named one of Mass High Tech’s 5 Startups to Follow.
All in all, it’s been an exciting time here at GoodTwo. We keep growing and are about to have some great rapid-fire announcements. We’re looking forward to sharing them with you, so keep checking back here. Thanks for following us!
