The company is now announcing a $9m Series A round led by Propel Venture Partners, with significant participation from Omidyar Network, the impact investing firm established by Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay. “The traditional 9-5 career path doesn’t work for everyone, and we’re seeing more and more people set out to make their own way. Steady sees and serves this group, giving them the tools to discover new job opportunities, and the resources to earn more money and take control. Helping hardworking folks do and get more is an important mission and I’m excited to be part of it .” – Shaquille O’Neal, who has joined the team as an Advisor and Advocate for the BYO (Build-Your-Own) workforce.
Bottom Line: Trupo comes to mind.
