Barcelona-based Workfully secures €1.2 million in seed fundraising from a number of international funds, including Pitchdrive and Secways Ventures, with the assistance of Indico Capital as the lead investor.
With the additional funding, Workfully plans to keep up product development and support its expansion strategies, ultimately enabling more recruits to work for themselves with real freedom and improve the labor market.
Valerio Rossi, CEO and co-founder of Workfully said, “We believe that building a recruiting business in the future will look much more like being a content creator: starting off on a platform like Workfully, building an audience and then monetizing that audience in-platform,”.
Companies seeking highly sought-after talent are thus able to select appropriate recruiters from an enormous database of professionals and expand their recruiting easily from any location in the world. They will be able to hire quicker, effectively, and openly thanks to shared data sets, market research, and local knowledge.
Stefano Tacconi, the CCO and co-founder of Workfully, who left his job at Google to start Workfully said, “The company aims to not only empower recruiters to place senior candidates into enterprise companies, but in some cases to give high potential candidates with no technical skills the training needed to access higher-paying positions,”.
Workfully, an organization founded in 2021, aims to build the world’s most dependable recruiting process and serve as the foundation for an entirely novel recruiting economy. Workfully uses a completely different approach from traditional marketplaces, which eliminate the middleman (the recruiter) and link a particular talent pool to businesses directly.
It creates a platform for recruiters, allowing them to develop, interact with, and capitalize on vertical talent pools on their own. This means that with Workfully’s technology, recruiters will be able to successfully establish their own digital recruiting agency without having to deal with client acquisition, LinkedIn membership costs, or independent marketing efforts in an extremely competitive field.
