Just under 48 hours of launching their second crowdfunding campaign, UK tech firm JobLab has hit its goal of £200,000.

London-based JobLab, which pays candidates to look for graduate jobs, has been backed by Peter Roberts, serial entrepreneur and founder of PureGym.

“The new types of businesses that will have market share will have found a way to align themselves so that every side is getting net positive value,” he said.

“JobLab adds value to employers, to candidates and to the business and ultimately investors. I know a winner when I see one.”

The investment round, also endorsed by former UCAS Chief Executive Mary Curnock Cook, has attracted huge support since it was opened to the public on Crowdcube.
