The Mom Project, a Chicago, IL-based career destination for moms, raised $25M in Series B funding.
The round, which brings total funding to $36m since its founding in 2016, was led by growth investment firm 7GC with participation from Citi, Synchrony, High Alpha, and Silicon Valley Bank, alongside existing investors Initialized Capital, Grotech Ventures, OCA Ventures, Aspect Ventures, Wintrust Financial, IrishAngels, and Engage Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its enterprise product offerings, deepen channel partnerships, and introduce new ways to support women throughout their motherhood journey beyond their job search.
Led by Allison Robinson, Founder & CEO, The Mom Project is a career destination for moms connecting moms with small businesses and family-forward leading brands such as Apple, Nike, Gap Inc., Invesco, and BP — especially as businesses and employees adapt to the future of working remotely amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The company currently features a community of more than 275,000 professionals and more than 2,000 companies.
To expedite support to both jobseekers and businesses, The Mom Project recently launched The Stronger Together Fund, Resume Rev, and Unity Program among other strategic initiatives.
