galooThe Marseille start-up Galoo has just raised 600,000 euros from 2C Invest, CAAP Création, Alumni Business Angels and PACA Investissement. The company offers associations a set of services, including the management of their day-to-day activities such as the licensee base, the monitoring of contributions or the organization of events via ticket offices. It will take advantage of this new investment to accelerate its commercial development and increase its workforce.

“Galoo needs funding before it can break even. »Explains Jean-Christophe Leonard, co-founder of the start-up. “Their positioning is innovative and responds to a strong need for structuring of the associative world. Associations are now also subject to increased competition, which pushes them to increase their notoriety to continue to attract Members. The platform clearly responds to these issues, ”adds Marie Desportes, from Turenne Capital (which represents PACA Investissement).

Founded in November 2011, Galoo targets, in a market of 1.3 million associations, small structures that do not have the necessary means to manage and develop their commercial and marketing activities.
