We were delighted to receive this exciting news from Michael Rihani, Chief Strategy Officer at Koofers, a former member company colleague at VT KnowledgeWorks, and an early supporter of Handshake 2.0.
Dear Handshake 2.0,
What started out as a simple "level the playing field" idea out of my Virginia Tech dorm room (specifically, 313 Vawter Hall), Koofers - a Blacksburg-created term and tradition - has seen incredible nationwide growth (300,000+ students use the service).
A few days ago we closed a $5 million investment round.
Steve Case tweeted to his 362,000+ followers about us.
We will be announcing some exciting news next week in Blacksburg, Virginia.
You're invited to read more about Koofers on Handshake 2.0.
VT KnowledgeWorks is a client of Handshake Media, Incorporated, parent company of Handshake 2.0.
