Milwaukee staffing startup LatinoPro Inc. is raising a $180,000 seed round to develop and launch its web platform.
The round was launched Nov. 10 and is expected to close within 60 days. So far, about $60,000 has been raised and the other $120,000 is committed, said co-founder and chief executive officer Benjamin Morales. The total raise is expected to come from three investors.
LatinoPro was co-founded in 2016 by Morales, David Soya and Adam Bakken. It offers professional Latino and Spanish-speaking recruitment to Milwaukee-area companies. The idea came out of an entrepreneurship class Morales took at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and he developed it via the university’s Launch Pad student startup accelerator.
