Tech hiring service Lagou announced today the completion of a 220 million yuan (33.8 million USD) C round led by existing investor Hongdao Capital, followed by Qiming Ventures and Rongchao Investment. This round will raise the company’s total funding to nearly 65 million USD.

Prior to this financing, Lagou raised 2 million yuan in angel investment from Chinese top angel investors Bob Xu and Zeng Liqing, $5 million USD in Series A from Bertelsmann and a $25 million USD B round from Qiming Ventures in 2014.

Lagou was initially launched by Xu Dandan, Ma Delong and Bao Aile in 2013 as a parallel project to 3W Café, a to-go place for budding entrepreneurs and angel investors in Beijing’s tech hub Zhongguancun. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visited 3W Café and even drank a coffee there, an anecdote widely circulated in China’s startup community as a government gesture supporting entrepreneurship and innovation.
