Vangst, a Denver, CO- and Santa Monica, California-based human capital resource platform to the legal cannabis industry, closed a $10 million Series A financing.
The round, which increased the total capital raised to date to $12.5m, was led by Casa Verde Capital and included Lerer Hippeau, among others.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its rollout to 10 more markets in the United States and Canada over the next two years and continue to strengthen its leadership team and technology platform.
Led by Karson Humiston, Founder and CEO, Vangst provides a proprietary, bi-directional technology platform that matches employers looking to fill temporary positions with job seekers looking for temporary employment. Connecting companies directly with licensed employees, or Vangsters, Vangst GIGS is comprised of two separate portals – one for employers and another for on-demand, temporary employees. The employer portal allows clients to post temporary job openings; the employee portal allows job candidates to search, apply and accept temporary job openings.
Vangst GIGS is currently available in Colorado and California.
