Early Career Job Market Handshake Raises $40 Million

Handshake, a platform for both students looking to take their early career steps and employers that want to reach them, has raised $40 million in a Series C round of funding, after hitting 14 million users in the U.S. across 700 universities, and 300,000 employers targeting them.

The round was led by EQT Ventures, , with participation also from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Omidyar Network and Reach Capital, as well as True Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Spark Capital and KPCB Edge. The plan is to use the new funding to expand into more markets like Europe, using EQT’s network of businesses in the region to help it along.
