Zivity

Zivity, a San Francisco start-up which launched at TechCrunch40 in 2007, is a premium subscription and fan interaction platform.

They celebrate artists through crowd sourced curation and editorial moderation of photography that highlights unique beauty. Fans freely interact with artists and vote for their favorite content. These dollar-backed votes are then used to reward artists with cash payments.

In July 2009 Zivity spun off Top Fans into a separate company.
