Seth Radman co-founded and serves as chief technology officer for Infinite Giving, a new financial technology startup that helps mostly nonprofits passively invest their money to continuously grow reserves. Launching out of Atlanta Tech Village with co-founder Karen Houghton, Infinite Giving’s software platform automates an investment strategy bypassing spending money on an investment advisor.
Radman grew up in Johns Creek and became a bar mitzvah at Temple Emanu-El before graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering.
“While I was in college, I taught myself how to code and build apps. I’ve previously built two music apps – Crescendo and Upbeat Music App.”
Crescendo is an interactive music training app that gives students real-time feedback while practicing. It grew to over 1 million users worldwide, and the app was acquired by Ultimate Guitar in 2019.
Radman also created Upbeat Music App during the pandemic. It lets musicians collaborate virtually in real-time, like Zoom but for musicians. There have been 4,000 schools and 200,000 students and teachers using the product during COVID. There are over 100 schools using Upbeat Music App in Georgia, including teachers/students from the Atlanta Jewish Academy, The Davis Academy, and The Weber School.
Radman explained, “My new startup Infinite Giving brings modern, financial technology to nonprofits and automates their investment strategies to grow giving. After nonprofits complete a questionnaire, we provide investment options based on their risk level and the investment policy. We use passive investing, instead of active investing, so nonprofits don’t have to do anything throughout the year while their funds grow. We are launching the product soon and have a waitlist of nonprofits ready to start using it.”
So far the duo has raised $500,000 in funding in the pre-seed round from 12 local Atlanta investors in six weeks (versus the traditional six months) to help grow the team and product build out.
