Wahooly is a crowd funding company that introduces social networkers to startup websites, giving them an investment stake in return for promoting the new business. It launched in late 2011 through a partnership with Klout. Described as "a group of socially-connected individuals that together, help launch startups." They launched with 27,000 initial beta members and are looking to help accelerate the growth of 200 businesses in 2012.
Dana Severson, founder of Wahooly, claims the name comes from the wahoo fish. “..it's the fastest fish in the world and it swims in schools. We're really based on collaboration and crowds. And, you know, we're accelerating the growth of startups.”
