More money and changes are coming for the successful team at InternMatch.
Founded in Seattle back in 2009 and now stationed in Silicon Valley, InternMatch just landed a $1.2 million round from previous investors like Netflix Founder Marc Randolph and TeachStreet founder Dave Schappell, along with new additions like Seattle angel investor Rudy Gadre.
InternMatch helps students find high-quality internships at companies such as Walt Disney, Amazon and Blue Nile by offering a platform to discover and apply for new opportunities. Founded by Nathan Parcells, Andrew Maguire and Kyle Wilkinson, the company moved its headquarters to San Francisco in October 2010 and raised $500,000 in fresh capital in September 2011.
With the new funding, InternMatch is looking add employees and expand past just internships and into jobs for college undergrads and recent graduates. It currently works with over 350 university partners and there are hundreds of businesses, both big and small, that use the website to recruit talent.
Here’s Maguire talking about InternMatch at the TechCafe event in Seattle last year.
