HR Tech Venture Capital In 2017: Podcast AND Infographic

HR tech has been a hot-bed for venture capital investment for years. We’ve been doing our best to keep track of all of the venture capital investments flowing into the market in 2017. So far this year we’ve tracked 35 deals for a total of $402 million.

I’m sharing my thoughts on the trends these investments reflect and my detailed opinions on the 6 largest deals so far this year on the latest HR MarketWatch podcast. You also get to listen in on my recent conversation with  Jason Weingarten the CEO at Yello, who raised $31 million earlier this year, which was the second largest round of funding so far. Learn about Yello’s product evolution from recruiting tech focused on campus recruiting to a full suite of talent acquisition technology, including recruitment marketing and talent CRM, and hear about some of the trends impacting that segment of HR technology. For those of you seeing this via RSS, you can click through to HRWINS.COM

I’m also sharing the entire list, and a little more analysis here:

    Hi George,
    There are a few deals I know of that are not on this list. Would love to find a way for us to partner on this from the Women in HR Tech perspective.
