Vancouver startup Withe has raised a USD $1.1 million pre-seed round led by San Francisco-based Focal for its on-demand video interview and virtual hiring event platform.
Withe’s SaaS platform is designed for enterprises that hire hundreds to thousands of people at the same time, such as staffing and recruiting teams in the tourism and hospitality industry.
With the new funds, the company is planning on further expanding its technical team and building its roadmap, alongside its first enterprise customer, Fortune 500 industry leader, Trueblue, as a design partner.
“Today, it simply takes too long to get qualified candidates in front of great companies. What we’ve created in Withe is a platform that benefits both recruiters and candidates by providing them with an on-demand and seamless experience,” said Daniel Shalinsky, CEO and co-founder of Withe.
“This funding will propel the next phase of Withe by enabling us to continue to hire the right people while we expand further into new markets,” said Shalinsky.
Withe reduces interview time by 82%, providing enterprise hiring teams with seamless scheduling and better utilization of their most valuable resource: time.
Industry leaders who rely on Withe for virtual hiring fairs experience notable decreases in time-to-hire and improved efficiencies across the board.
Withe was co-founded by Shalinsky and Liam Ross.
