Wilya Raises $4M Seed Funding

Wilya, formerly known as Gig and Take, a NYC-based B2B SaaS company providing a skills operating system for HR practices in the manufacturing and supply chain sectors, raised $4M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Ironspring Ventures, with participation from Schematic Ventures, Plug & Play Ventures, Iron Prairie Ventures, Motivate Ventures, and 25Madison.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development and deployment of its software solutions, further expand its market reach, and add product features to address human capital challenges in the supply chain.

Led by CEO and Founder Rahil Siddiqui, Wilya provides HR practices in the manufacturing sector with a SaaS software platform to facilitate efficient allocation of skills and resources while promoting a more flexible approach to work. With Wilya, companies can manage and increase productivity of existing full-time labor and introduce flex-worker pools – reducing the cost and complexity of expensive contract workers and forced overtime.

Commenting on the news, Rahil Siddiqui said: “Wilya offers a unique combination of integrated tools to introduce and manage closed pools of skilled, frontline industrial workers, and we are eager to expand on our early successes with this fresh capital and exciting new partners. Our new name also better reflects the increasing capabilities of the SaaS platform as we help our customers be more strategic in scaling up and down their skilled labor in a volatile economy.
