Polish HR tech startup Staffly raises €415k from Freya Capital
- Founded in 2020 by Filip Sobel, Staffly uses proprietary psychometric tests and machine learning technology to determine key personality traits of candidates for job positions. The startup aims to solve the most common problem for modern companies — a high turnover rate.
- Freya Capital, a US-based venture capital fund, led the round. The fund invests up to €1 million in early-stage companies with high growth potential and international scaling ambitions. ProtosNext, a Polish company investing in internet economy startups, also backed the startup.
“In our opinion, Staffly is above all an ambitious, complementary, and dynamic team that has already proved its worth. We see a lot of potential in Staffly, which can really change things up in the HR market. Hoping, they will do that with our little help,”Michał Lewandowski from Freya Capital comments on the investment.
- Toyota Motor Manufacturing Poland, as well as Leroy Merlin, and Action are already among Staffly customers. In December 2020, the company raised $270,000 in the first round of financing from the Czysta3.vc fund. Now the startup partners with the largest recruitment system in Poland — eRecruiter, created by Grupa Pracuj.
- Using these funds, the team wants to continue developing their product and enter the international market in the long term.
