UA-focused venture fund invests in alum’s job-matching company

A venture-capital fund focused on University of Arizona spinoffs has announced its fourth investment since its founding last year, backing a Phoenix-based startup with an online platform to help hotels and restaurants quickly find temporary workers.

UA Venture Capital Fund LLC participated in funding a seed round of growth capital for Qwick Inc., which was founded by Blaine Light, a graduate of the UA College of Engineering and its McGuire Entrepreneurship Program.
