Argyle, A U.S.-based company that provides infrastructure for consumers to connect their workforce platforms to businesses, announced on Thursday it secured $2.6 million through its seed round, which was led by Checkr and Bain Capital Ventures.
Founded last year, Argyle states its mission is to maximize the personal value of every worker’s data. The company does this by providing workers universal access to their own data and allowing them to control how, when and who it is used by.
“We see the future of work as dynamic and shift-based; one where income is derived from an ever more fragmented set of companies. To counteract this shift in work, worker-centric tools will harness the power of data to provide what no individual company can. Argyle’s infrastructure intends to power this future.”
Speaking about the investment, Shmulik Fishman, CEO of Argyle, stated:
“We’re creating a set of industry standards for companies to build their businesses on top of and are excited to see how new businesses tailored for flexible workers adopt and utilize Argyle. This round of financing will allow us to further build out the Argyle Data Network and build our product suite.”
Daniel Yanisse, Co-Founder & CEO of Checkr, went on to add:
“Over the last year, we’ve developed a close relationship with Shmulik and his team as they’ve built Argyle into a platform for workforce data. This partnership cements our commitment to helping consumers and companies evolve to the new ways we work while giving workers access to important benefits and services.”
