Grow Your Business in Northern Virginia with digital marketing services from The W Agency
On-demand private investigator platform Trustify is spending $1.04 million to create 184 new jobs in Arlington, according to a joint press release by the startup and Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office.
The Crystal City-based startup will receive consulting services and nearly $120,000 in funding through the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s Jobs Investment Program.
Trustify was founded in 2015 in the District but moved to Arlington in early 2017, opening a new headquarters with a private investigator theme. The company raised $6.59 million in new funding in the second quarter of 2017, according to Pitchbook, bringing its post-deal valuation to about $43.6 million.
Trustify is eligible to receive $650 per job, up to $119,600 total, from the state program. The company gets reimbursed after the employee has been working for 90 days. Trustify pledged to create the new jobs over the next three years, according to VEDP spokeswoman Suzanne Clark.
