About Bid Beacon™
Bid Beacon™ was created when a local charity came to us unsatisfied with their traditional silent auction participation at events. They were looking for a modern silent auction app.
The team at Launch57 created Bid Beacon™ and has since helped thousands of fundraisers raise millions of dollars through our easy to use, self-managed program.
Bid Beacon™ is owned and managed by the team at Launch57, a mobile software development company located in Canada. We are very hands on with the solutions we create and can’t wait to help you raise more at your next fundraiser.
