One Jackson Employees Find New Jobs with TaskRabbit
November 16, 2012
VC-backed TaskRabbit has acquired online kids’ clothing retailer One Jackson just three months after the company closed a $2 million seed round. TaskRabbit, which operates a platform for outsourcing various odd jobs, closed its own $13 million Series C financing earlier this year. The synergies between the two companies may not be readily apparent, but One Jackson is not a typical e-commerce site; it functions more like an open marketplace, with users voting and bidding for goods and services as they do on TaskRabbit. In conjunction with the transaction, One Jackson will be discontinuing its services so its team can concentrate on enhancing the TaskRabbit product.
