How To Get Your HR Solution Startup Funded

The Indian startup scene is an exciting phase with entrepreneurship at its zenith. In addition to several government initiatives to promote entrepreneurship, venture capitalists sank $4 Bn into India in 2014 in some 300 deals—almost twice as much money as they invested in 2013 and 14 times the level of a decade ago, according to Indian data tracker, Venture Intelligence. Many a times, entrepreneurs rush to seek funding without having a strong grip on their own business or on investor's needs or criteria. Given such a scenario wherein India Inc. is looking forward to organized staffing and workforce solutions to reach its various business goals, the HR solution companies have witnessed considerable evolution with niche, customized, and innovative products and systems with increased focus on technological interventions for staffing, recruitment, and other HR shared services...

Using a hiring aid

Using a hiring aid

Chennai-based start-up PiQube helps companies hire faster and better by matching job needs to the right candidates. A few months ago, a Singapore-based bank was looking for candidates with knowledge of FORTRAN, a programming language that’s not in vogue anymore. Its search was desperate, as all its systems still run on FORTRAN. Yet, none of its attempts bore fruit. When it did finally bear fruit, it was thanks to a proprietary algorithm (say, a formula) built by a Chennai-based start-up called PiQube. Started by 32-year-old Jayadev Mahalingam, PiQube wants to help companies hire faster and better, by matching job needs to the right candidates. The start-up, groundwork for which began in 2014, was in the news a few days ago when a human resource focussed private investment company called the HR Fund invested $500,000 (about Rs 3.2 crore) into it. It was the second public re...

HR Fund to invest Rs 3.2 crore in two tranches in PiQube

NEW DELHI: The HR Fund, a human resources-focused private investment company, has invested $500,000 (about Rs 3.2 crore) in PiQube, a Chennai-based startup assisting in hiring. The investment, which will be made in two tranches, is the third transaction for the HR Fund, which has a Rs 50 crore corpus. It previously invested in human resources outsourcing venture PeopleStrong and HRfocussed knowledge and media platform People Matters in 2012. "Recruitment is a huge chunk of the human resources sector. We expect PiQube to, in a few years, be the default platform and attack the market, which is really yet to adopt technology so far," said Utkarsh Joshi, principal at HR Fund. Founded in 2012 by Jayadev Mahalingam, an alumnus of the University of Madras, PiQube uses data-driven algorithms and undertakes socio-metric profiling to assist recruiters in finding candidates with the...
