Health Velocity Capital led the round, which also includes participation from OnShift’s existing institutional investors Draper Triangle Ventures, Early Stage Partners, Fifth Third Capital, HLM Venture Partners, North Coast Venture Fund and West Capital Advisors.

Marty Felsenthal, managing member of Health Velocity Capital, said in a statement, “We believe this capital will allow OnShift to accelerate market penetration and rapidly scale the development of new and innovative SaaS (software as a service) products in human capital management.”

Mark Woodka, CEO of OnShift, said the investment “reinforces our commitment to alleviate the burdens of staffing and labor management while accelerating our plans to expand in the senior care market.”
