Matteo Trovò, CEO of StepsConnect said, “The idea of StepsConnect was born in 2022, from interviews and customer scientific investigations carried out with users of our first platform. As a team, we have been working together for several years and our bond is very strong, such as the values that drive us and the shared interest in complex problems. When we started, we knew we wanted to do something big, but in the midst of the pandemic what was most useful to us was developing platforms for clients,”

Today, Nicolò serves as the COO and acts as the engine that coordinates internal operations and fosters communication. His ability to strike a balance between operational and development needs is essential to their ongoing success. Matteo takes on the role of CEO and frontman, managing growth and assisting the sales team. Lastly, Anton holds the job of Chief Technology Officer; StepsConnect's status owed much to his aptitude at resolving intricate issues.

Denis Balbo, Head of Sales said, “We are riding the wave of digital transformation in the Italian market: HRtech is becoming increasingly important, and the numbers are proving it thanks to the growth it is experiencing today. Over the last ten years, we have realized that HR has never evolved and today our product aims to give an answer to a market that is transforming, a vertical, solid and fast answer,”.

Stepsconnect is getting ready for a Seed Round in the next months. The goal of the Round is to invest in the optimisation of a product that can dig deeper and deeper into the Recruiting process and to expedite the expansion of the foreign nations who have been testing it recently.

David Erba, 40Jemz Ventur Co-Managing Partner said, “For decades the job advertisements market and the application/selection process have not evolved, increasingly shaking off the needs of the new generations. StepsConnect is a fresh and more current solution than ever that aims to fill this gap. We are thrilled to support Matteo and his team in this innovative adventure. We continue the search for the next startups to invest in, which solve the usual problems in an innovative way and improve the efficiency of processes with intelligence and innovation,".
