I’ve always put tremendous stock in my relationships with people. People are the lifeblood of our world, and strong relationships form the basis of all meaningful human interaction — families and friendships, business partners and colleagues, investors and entrepreneurs.
I am therefore especially pleased today to announce Spark Capital’s investment in Work Market – the latest company from serial entrepreneur Jeff Leventhal.
I have known Jeff for a number of years, and over that time we have built a great personal and professional relationship. So when it was time for Jeff to start his next venture, working together felt as natural as could be.
WorkMarket, as it sounds, aims to be an efficient market for employers to find, deploy and manage workers as they need them. I’ve written previously about the power of marketplace businesses, and Work Market is addressing the largest market of them all – the people market.
Jeff has been working in the labor marketplace space for almost two decades, having previously built multiple successful companies. The passion and energy Jeff brings to this area is intoxicating, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.
Speaking of relationships, we are also incredibly fortunate to have our friends at Union Square Ventures along with us on this journey and specifically Fred Wilson who will be joining me on the company’s board.
Please visit WorkMarket.com for available job opportunities if you’d like to join us as well.
