BraveNewTalent, the ‘social recruitment’ platform, has secured an undisclosed amount of venture capital funding from Northzone Ventures and two angels noted for their experience in the recruiting industry: Pierce Casey and Mike Bourne. However, we understand the funding puts the startup within site of a full Series A round, with a further round of funding-raising in the offing.
Lucian Tarnowski, BraveNewTalent’s Founder & CEO said the investment would be used to hire and scale in the US market. BraveNewTalent already has a network of corporate clients starting in London which has brought in revenues and pushed the startup towards profitability already. Clients include IBM, Tesco, L’Oreal and McAfee.
Northzone, one of Europe’s leading venture funds which invested in Spotify and Lastminute.com, has experience in this market, previously backing Stepstone, the recruitment site launched during the dotcom boom.
