Company Details

Update

Crowd Fusion (now Ceros) is a publishing platform that combines the best of several popular applications like blogging, wikis, tagging and workflow management into a powerful open source framework in order to enable rapid deployment of new features and to solve the pain points of publishing vertical destination sites at scale.

Founded in 2007 by CEO Brian Alvey (former co-founder of Weblogs, Inc) and CTO Craig Wood, Crowd Fusion raised $3 million from Velocity Interactive Group, Greycroft Partners and Marc Andreessen in July of 2008. Velocity's Jon Miller and Greycroft's Ian Sigalow joined the company's board of directors. When Miller left Velocity to become the CEO of Digital Media at Newscorp, Velocity changed its name to Fuse Capital and Fuse's Mickie Rosen joined the board.

In September of 2008, Crowd Fusion launched its first showcase site, Obsessable, covering consumer electronics. In December of 2008, Crowd Fusion launched another showcase site, Super Eco, covering green news.

In 2009, Crowd Fusion has explored working with other publishers to conquer various verticals like sports, finance, food, fashion, music, health, cars, entertainment and parenting, while using the showcase sites as a testing ground to further plan and develop the Crowd Fusion platform.
