PAIRIN, a platform that matches individuals to optimal careers, professional development, and jobs announced the close of $2.1 million, the first tranche of its Series A investment round. The round includes support from ETF@JFFLabs, JFF’s impact fund that invests in innovative technology-based solutions.
This comes at a time when the economic devastation and public health crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused one in four Americans to be out of work, and has magnified the inequality that was already deeply ingrained in the body politic. Now more than ever, people need innovative solutions like PAIRIN to pursue and achieve economic advancement.
PAIRIN is at the intersection of innovation, technology and workforce development at a time where unemployment is at an all-time high and economic mobility is out of reach for millions more. ETF@JFFLabs is excited to invest in PAIRIN as they expand the My Journey platform to other states, helping millions of people on their path to finding a meaningful career.Yigal Kerszenbaum, managing director, ETF@JFFLabs
