PopBookings Raises $1 Million in Oversubscribed Funding Round
Capital Will Support New Product Development and Further International Expansion
KANSAS CITY, MO – PopBookings, the event staffing software that streamlines talent coordination for promotional models, brand ambassadors, street teams, bartenders, and more, is pleased to announce the recent closure of its latest fundraising round. The company raised $1+ million in an oversubscribed round to support its product development effort and enable further expansion into overseas markets.
“PopBookings is seeing a ton of explosive growth right now,” says co-founder and COO Scott Hanson,” and we’re bringing on agencies and users faster than we know what to do with them. This raise will help us not only keep up with all of this amazing growth but also to continue to build market-leading applications for our users. We’re very excited about what’s ahead.”
The PopBookings app allows event staffing agencies, their clients, and the contractors they work with to communicate on a unified platform, sending job invites, booking confirmations, payments, and messages seamlessly. The company recently expanded its service into the U.K. and Europe and has begun adding new industries that use temporary labor, including construction, to its platform. This fundraising round will support those efforts and allow for additional hiring over the next year.
“When we started this company it was just three of us working out of our parents’ basements,” says co-founder and CEO Erika Klotz, “and it’s grown into something that we could never have imagined. It’s amazing. And the best part for us is that we get to not only work with our great, and growing, team, but we’re also creating a product that helps thousands of other people all over the the world find work and sustain themselves at the same time. It’s such an honor to be able to come to work every day and do that.”
