Defy, a California-based venture capital firm led the funding round that closed today. Neil Sequeira, founder and partner at Defy, will also be joining RIVET Work’s board of directors as part of this funding round. 

Other participants are representatives of LegalZoom, Airspace, Augment Ventures, Detroit Venture Partners, Michigan Rise, and more. There were also multiple angel investors.

The $5.6M will contribute to the solution of RIVET Work’s rising demand from their customers. Product development and sales expansion goals can now become a reality to meet the market’s ever-growing need for trade workers and nurture current customers spanning over 15 states.
