SpringRole, the blockchain professional network, has recently secured $1.3 million in private funding from early investors that include AlphaBlock Investments, DNA (Brock Pierce and Scott Walker’s Blockchain investment and consulting firm), Isaac Lee’s BlockWater, and Wavemaker Genesis.
SpringRole was founded and led by Kartik Mandaville, and aids its users with building professional reputations amidst their network. The platform is fueled by artificial intelligence alongside blockchain tech to remove the possibility of fraud from profiles, and creates an ecosystem of stronger benefits for endorsements.
Co-founder of DNA and an early backer of SpringRole, Scott Walker, said,
"SpringRole is taking an important and risk-managed approach to solving a massive problem in the HR industry globally. By focusing on India, where they have already had success — and where the problem is particularly acute — SpringRole has an excellent opportunity to capture market share quickly and build a set of Blockchain and API standards that can open them to additional opportunities as they grow.”
