Portland-based plans to grow nationally with its newest $750,000 investment round.

The startup aims to simplify the hiring process for restaurant managers and owners.

The funding round included the inaugural investment from the TiE Angels Oregon TAP fund, according to the Portland Business Journal.

“We’re excited to make Poached our first TAP Fund 1 investment,” said TiE Oregon President Nitin Rai, in a written statement. “By extending their runway and closing their current funding round, we’re making Poached a model for our future investments.”

Poached, which secured a portion of this funding earlier this year, wants to be the go to hiring platform for the restaurant industry. The platform looks to make it easy for restaurant owners and managers to streamline the hiring process and manage and share resumes.

Co-founder Kirk Thornby said earlier this year that the company would need investment money to properly scale to other markets. He said in a statement: “By addressing the needs of a high turnover industry, we’ve doubled our revenue and shown there is even more growth on the horizon.”

Poached employs 14.
