Grantoo raises $1.7 million for social gaming platform that awards tuition grants

GRANTOO: $1.7 million seed round to SF-based Grantoo from a motley crew of European firms and angels, reports TechCrunch. The startup offers a gaming platform where college students earn tuition grants by playing social games. (It has apparently got $100k to give away this fall.) VentureBeat has coverage of an online trivia tournament that Grantoo ran back in April, with brand name colleges like Yale, Duke, and Stanford participating.
