Seattle’s Jobvana Raises More Cash


Seattle startup Jobvana has attracted new investment just three months after securing it’s last round of capital. The company, which operates a social network used by small businesses to market products and services, has attracted an undisclosed round of financing from Rally Capital.

“The ability for us to grow faster and form a partnership with Rally seemed like a win-win situation for us,” said Jobvana Chief Executive Nathan Casey, who founded the company last year after losing his job at Washington Mutual.

Jobvana’s network, launched last summer, has a user base of over 30,000 businesses, and they plan to build on that with a new website and national marketing campaign. Small business owners can use the platform to promote their business and make connections with other business people in the community, much as they would with Yelp or LinkedIn.
