TORONTO, July 9, 2019 – Flow Capital Corp. (TSXV: FW) is pleased to announce that it has closed a senior secured two-year note with Montreal-based Wirkn, Inc. The investment was matched by an equivalent amount from equity investors and another lender.
“Wirkn’s video-based job marketplace helps retail brands to find and retain shift-based employees, in particular, Millennial and Generation Z candidates,” said Robb McLarty, Flow Capital’s Chief Investment Officer. “Hiring the right people is a key success factor for retailers. The next generation of brick-and-mortar retail will be heavily influenced by technology and humans to create an experience that is differentiated from e-commerce. Wirkn is enabling this for many of the world’s largest shopping centre owners and operators. We are excited to fuel Wirkn’s continued growth.”
