Likecharity's US launch

Likecharity, the Dublin-based internet firm that helps charities raise more money while cutting their fundraising costs, is planning to launch its platform in the United States in January and has already signed up a major client there.

Founder Tadhg O'Toole (left) told the Herald that the company is raising $1m (€811,000) to fund the US venture, and said the market provides a significant opportunity for the firm.

It has already raised $750,000 of its target funds in the US.
