PeopleLinx has raised $3.2 million in Series A funding led by Osage Venture Partners, Greycroft Partners and MissionOG. Several angel investors also participated in the round.
In conjunction with this financing, Dave Hanna from Hanna Ventures and Nate Lentz of Osage Venture Partners will join PeopleLinx’s board of directors.
Nate Lentz (Managing partner, Osage Venture Partners): There is a very large and unaddressed market for third-party LinkedIn Social Business solutions like PeopleLinx, especially among organizations that already have hundreds or thousands of employees active on LinkedIn.
Founded in 2009 as a social business consulting company by former LinkedIn employees Nathan Egan and Patrick Baynes , PeopleLinx re-launched in early 2012 as a scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed to help corporations and their employees use LinkedIn.
Since their initial product launch in early 2012, PeopleLinx has seen adoption by companies like Experian, FMC and Prudential.
