Charleston Angel Partners (CAP) has invested in Colorado-based company Giide to drive expansion and growth of their interactive audio content creation platform built to modernize business communications.

“Giide stands out as an innovative storytelling platform, empowering users to craft compelling narratives effortlessly by seamlessly blending audio, video, and interactive elements for an enriched experience in minutes, not hours. Users do not need to be tech savvy to create truly professional content, and the learning curve for utilizing this innovative product is one of the most minimal we've come across. 

Reading is taxing and video could mean hiring a production company. Giide has built a powerful, intuitive product and put it in a concise, easy to use platform at an affordable price, and the provided backend analytics help content creators understand reach and conversions.  

Adding the icing on the cake, in our engagement with the Giide team, their collaborative ethos and dedication left a lasting impression. The collective expertise of both the management team and their advisors, composed of seasoned professionals, showcased a depth of domain knowledge that impressed us”, says Peter Balastreni, CAPS Due Diligence team lead.  

“We're excited for the investment by Charleston Angels as we continue to expand markets, categories and grow revenue in 2024. CAP joins global and national investors in the round such as Supernode Global, American Public Media, and other angels who understand the opportunity and power of more engaging content for business,” says Allison Kent-Smith, Co-Founder of Giide.
