VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2013) - LX Ventures Inc.  (TSX VENTURE:LXV) ("LXV" or the "Company") and Weeve Ventures Inc. ("Weeve") are pleased to announce that they have finalized an asset acquisition agreement in which LXV will acquire all of Weeve's assets including their crowdfunding platform

Since its launch in July 2012, Weeve has helped dozens of nonprofits by providing a simple and effective platform to increase their fundraising efforts, making it easier to raise funds as compared to traditional fundraising methods.

LX Ventures plans to take Weeve's sophisticated crowdfunding framework and repurpose it for use in other industries that are ready for disruption.
