Gurugram based Kickstart Jobs has raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from ah! Ventures.
Other participants in the funding round were:
Vivek Joshi, founder of Wyzen Tech
Mohit Satyanand, chairman of Team Works Art
Amit Banati, president (Asia Pacific) at Kellogg’s
Arun Khanna, president (Asia) at Dun and Bradstreet.
Founded by Samriddhi Malhotra and Abhishek Srivastava in August 2015, Kickstart Jobs is a talent acquisition startup which connects entry level candidates with prospective employees.
Kickstart jobs has over 5000 candidates, enlisted about 3000 vacancies, conducted more than 2000 interviews and claim to have a 100% month on month growth in the number of candidates for interviews. It is operational in Delhi, Noida and Gurugram.
Harshad Lahoti, Founder and CEO of ah! Ventures said, “As an investor, the growth that is about to unfold in this entry-level jobs sector in the near future is evident to me. This growth and spurt of service offerings in the sector is especially lucrative for the currently existing workforce of over 500+ million in the blue & grey collar ecosystem of India. And, given the fact that this number is increasing at about 12 million per year, the need to effectively harness these human resources becomes all the more essential.”
