Following last week’s $8 million funding announcement, Vancouver’s SkyHive has appointed three new members to its Board of Directors: Pete Bodine of AllegisCyber Capital; Tom Lounibos of Accenture Ventures; and Andy Brown of Sand Hill East LLC.
Winner of the Spirit of BC Tech award at last week’s BC Tech awards, SkyHire is an advanced source of data for how the world works and learns.
With its AI-based engine, the platform reads an employee’s work profile to translate it into skills. It then finds correlation between these skills and the skills extracted from jobs to identify optimized career pathways through learning solutions – all done automatically using millions of real-time data points.
“Our new Board of Directors bring a vast network and deep expertise in enterprise workforce management, artificial intelligence, capital markets, and more,” said Sean Hinton, Founder and CEO of SkyHive. “On behalf of the entire SkyHive team, we are thrilled to transition into this new phase of accelerated growth with a world-class Board at the helm.”
Bodine serves as the Managing Director of AllegisCyber Capital, a leading early-stage venture capital firm focused on cybersecurity and data analytics. Lounibos is the Global Managing Director of Accenture Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Accenture. Brown is the CEO of Sand Hill East LLC and sits on the board of multiple publicly and privately traded technology companies including Guidewire Software, Zscaler, and Pure Storage.
