first web-based CRM and software platforms for nonprofits to the
industry's leading software platform. NeonCRM provides a full suite of
software tools that empower nonprofits to raise more money, better

together and provide a multiplying effect on donations – this is what
the combination of NeonCRM and Rallybound will achieve," said Rallybound
co-founder Shmuli Pinson. Both Pinson and co-founder Joe Magee will
continue to lead Rallybound, while also helping guide strategy for Neon
One. As part of Neon One, Rallybound will be able to build new features

systems architecture.
