Mobile, social and crowdfunding. Those are three common terms in the start-up world. But at one firm, those qualities are being combined into one app, and it's being targeted to another buzzword: millennials.
"It is like a bite-size, simpler version of crowdfunding," said Tilt CEO James Beshara, describing his company.
Tilt is comparable to Kickstarter, whose users have received about $2.1 billion for a variety of projects, or GoFundMe, which helped raise more than $1 billion in the past year, according to figures from both companies.
