Rectech startup Classet has raised $3 million in a seed funding round to increase the use of its services by trade businesses.

Launched this year, Classet lets students find jobs and paid apprenticeships in skilled trades. It also helps them build skills in various sectors of agriculture, energy, construction, manufacturing, medicine, transportation and service across the U.S.

Classet plans to use the funds to improve its digital services and enable businesses to leverage them to fill vacancies, according to the company’s news announcement.

“We’ve seen the difficulty of hiring firsthand and the need for a better solution to enable students and job seekers stuck in low-ceiling careers to pursue opportunities in the skilled trades. We believe everyone should have access to a quality, economically sustainable, and dignified career that the skilled trades have to offer. We want to help make that a reality and are excited by the support of our investors who share that mission,” said Gino Rooney, co-founder of Classet.

Early-stage VC fund Starting Line led the round, with participation from Weekend Fund, Wayfinder, SV Angel, and Liquid 2, amongst other angels and venture funds.
