FetchFind Announces 100% of Crowdfunding Goal
B2B Staff Education Platform Revolutionizing Pet Care Services still Accepting Investors
Chicago, IL (July 11, 2017) – It’s been a big month for FetchFind. When FetchFind began its equity crowdfunding campaign through Republic.co, the goal was simple: to give its users the opportunity to hold a financial interest in FetchFind and expand the business; to do this, FetchFind had to raise its minimum goal before the end of the campaign.
With time still remaining in the campaign, FetchFind announced that its goal had been both reached and surpassed, with 110% raised (from 158 investors, over 50% percent of which are pet industry professionals) as of July 10. The campaign shows no sign of slowing down; instead it continues to build momentum, setting the stage for FetchFind to end the summer on a strong note.
“They are seeing continuous growth in users, subscriptions, and course enrollment. It might not be a ‘10x unicorn OMG it’s the next SNAP-TWIT-BOOK!’ but they look really solid. I like solid, well-positioned companies when it comes to investing my money,” says Sean Masters, an investor in FetchFind. “Squaring that approach to risk with wanting to invest in startups is difficult, but with FetchFind it just feels right. They’ve got a great existing business and some wonderful ideas for the pet care world,” adds Masters.
With timing being everything, FetchFind is equally proud to announce a formal relationship with PetSmart. FetchFind is collaborating with PetSmart to create content and information to support talent recruitment efforts through a career awareness campaign. This, along with the 20% month over month growth that FetchFind is experiencing via their online learning programs for pet industry service companies, positions FetchFind for massive scale.

About FetchFind and Founder Jamie Migdal
The pet-care space is growing and outpacing itself in terms of talent availability and experience. Pet businesses are seeing more than 125% annual employee turnover and lack adequate training resources and solutions for employees. As a result, pet owners (and pets!) are vulnerable to untrained people interacting with and caring for their pets.
FetchFind is addressing the industry-wide need for greater professionalization and safety in pet care services across all staffing levels, by helping employers to more easily and effectively hire, train, and retain employees via their online education platform. FetchFind has customers across the globe in every pet care vertical.
A 2017 PetAge ICON Award Recipient, Founder and CEO Jamie Migdal has been innovating within the pet industry for 22 years. Having successfully built three national pet service companies, Jamie is an expert across all aspects of the industry.
In 2016, Jamie was named by Tech.co as one of the top 10 founders over 40 in Chicago. In October 2016 FetchFind was selected as one of the top five most innovative pet care companies via the Purina Pet Care Innovation Prize, and in November, Jamie increased FetchFind’s share of the pet care services market with the acquisition of PawedIn in November 2016, which connects pet care companies to consumers.
