Healthcare staffing talent platform Trusted Inc. announces funding round. Other rounds announced this week include QuickHire and Crosschq.

Trusted Inc.

Trusted Inc., a talent platform focused on healthcare staffing, announced $149 million in new investments, including a $94 million Series C funding round led by venture capital firm Greenspring Associates and a $55 million Series B funding round led by early investors Craft Ventures and Felicis Ventures.

The two rounds bring total funding at Trusted to $175 million.

The rounds will go toward accelerating the rollout of Trusted’s new “Works” platform, which enables hospitals to build their own on-demand workforces from contract labor to internal float pools.

“The entire staffing supply chain in healthcare is broken and has been for some time. Trusted built its brand by focusing on one half of the equation: creating a place where nurses can take control of their job search and find flexible roles,” said StepStone Group General Partner John Avirett. “With the launch of Works, they’re bringing it all together by helping hospitals hire and manage their entire contingent workforce and we feel they are well poised to tackle the entire $1 trillion healthcare workforce market.” 

San Francisco-based Trusted had a $20 million Series A round back in May 2019.


QuickHire, a talent platform focused on the skilled trades and services industries, announced an oversubscribed $1.41 million funding round led by MATH Venture Partners. The QuickHire platform enables candidates to swipe left or right to apply for a job. Candidates can also record introductory videos.

The funding will go toward technology investment and team expansion of the female, African American-led company.

QuickHire launched in April 2021 and today has more than 60 paying clients and more than 11,000 job seekers. The company currently operates in the Wichita, Kansas, and Kansas City areas, and it has plans to expand across the Midwest in 2022.


Crosschq announced on Tuesday a strategic investment from investment fund Okta Ventures. The investment comes shortly after a $30 million round led by Tiger Global in September.

Crosschq’s platform provides pre-hire reference checks, data analytics on hiring and a candidate referral network.
