New Richmond Ventures Invests in Moonlighting

New Richmond Ventures has invested in Charlottesville-based Moonlighting, a company that runs an online marketplace for freelancers and businesses looking to hire them. The 8-month-old business said it has raised $1.9 million since its launch from local and national investors. The most recent fundraising round was led by The McClatchy Co., a California-based publishing business that owns 30 daily newspapers.

Theodore L. Chandler Jr., an NRV co-founder and principal, will join Moonlighting’s board. An NRV spokeswoman said the investment group would likely lead another fundraising round for Moonlighting later this year or early next year.
