(Press Release) GET ON BOARD RAISES US$600K SEED ROUND LED BY ANGEL VENTURES AND FEN VENTURES
Get on Board, a SaaS solution for recruiting tech talent, raised US$600,000 from Angel Ventures, Fen Ventures, 500 Startups San Francisco, 500 Startups Mexico, as well as angel investors.
Get on Board connects great tech companies with great tech talent in Latin America. The company provides clients and professionals tools and intelligence to remove friction in the job hiring process. Clients have access to a database of talented professionals, an applicant tracking system, job publication management process and recruiting tools. Get on Board charges clients for job postings via an annual subscription model or one-time fee. The startup currently has operations in Peru, Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and the United States of America.
Companies and startups struggle to attract tech talent due to the absence of necessary tools and support for the hiring process. Get on Board improves its client’s recruiting time by giving them access to top tier technology candidates across Latin America. The company manages job offer workflow in an integrated tracking platform and organizes professionals according to knowledge and skill set.
Get on Board will use the financing round to strengthen the team, develop new recruitment products and to expand operations into Mexico.
Angel Ventures invested through its Peru-based seed fund, AVP Seed Fund I. “We are excited about the way Get on Board is empowering talented professionals in Latin America to connect with companies who are leading the wave of digital transformation and innovation in the region” says Greg Mitchell, Regional Director of Angel Ventures.
The company is led by Sergio Nouvel (Co-founder and CEO) with more than 6 years of experience with technology and as an entrepreneur and Jorge Rodriguez (Co-founder and COO) with more of 20 year of experience as entrepreneur and developer.
“The road ahead of us looks daunting and exciting. We are building solutions like crazy, expanding into Mexico, growing our team and piloting new recruitment products.” said Sergio Nouvel (CEO)
