Congratulations to Shiftgig, raising $10 Million. This is not just a big win for Shiftgig, but for the entire Chicago startup ecosystem - all of the funding was raised from Chicago-area VC's, including Gary Holdren of Garland Funds and Richard Kiphart of KGC Capital (who also backs Get Set, another Catapult alumni company).
We've got all the great press:
Shiftgig raises $10 million — entirely from Chicago in the Chicago Tribune
Shiftgig raises $10 million from Holdren, Kiphart in Crain's Chicago
Another Round: Shiftgig, the LinkedIn for the Service Industry, Raises $10 Million, All from Chicago in ChicagoInno
Shiftgig raised $3 Million in November 2012 and graduated from Catapult a year ago. We look forward to seeing all the great things to come!
