SkillCat, a free training & jobs platform for skilled trade workers, today announced a $3.3 million seed round led by Omar Hamoui at Mucker Capital.
The investment brings SkillCat closer to its vision of placing one million blue collar workers into high-paying skilled trade jobs.
Both Mucker and Omar have deep experience in the technology space. Mucker Capital led the seed round for ServiceTitan (recently valued at $9.5 billion) and Omar famously started and sold digital ads platform AdMob to Google in 2009 (for close to $1 billion).
The investment brings SkillCat closer to solving two of the world’s biggest problems: 1) blue collar workers can’t find good jobs and 2) there is a massive skilled trade worker shortage.
