Jiffy on Demand raises $3 million to continue expansion
Toronto’s Jiffy on Demand raises $3 million to expand their platform that connects users to home maintenance and repair professionals, making it a seamless booking experience for homeowners, with easy-to-understand pricing and responsive customer service.
“Jiffy is in a unique position to capitalize on the massive market opportunity to advance home maintenance in a way that hasn’t been explored before,” said Bert Amato, partner at Golden Venture Partners. Amato was an angel investor in Jiffy’s 2016 round. “The company has created a meaningful and highly-desirable product on both sides of the value chain, where both consumers and home service professionals can win.”
The round was led by Golden Venture Partners, with participation from Hedgewood and angel investing firm Two Small Fish Ventures who also participated in this follow-on financing.
Jiffy plans on using the funding for platform development, continue expansion into the U.S with a focus on Chicago, and to support marketing initiatives.
“Boston is at the head of the pack when it comes to hard-working, tech savvy consumers and our platform is perfectly suited to serve the demand of their busy lifestyles,” said Ryan Shupak, co-founder and CEO of Jiffy. “The area’s regular need for property and yard maintenance due to seasonal changes along with the challenge of finding a reliable trade professional on the fly also presents an opportunity to serve an unmet need.”
We look forward to seeing Jiffy continue to transform the home maintenance experience. Congratulations!
