U.K.-based Headstart raised a $7 million round of VC to reduce the bias in recruiting. HRWins Founder, George LaRocque met with Headstart CEO and industry veteran Gareth Jones to discuss the round and the headstart product. Most of the applications we see that aim to reduce bias in recruiting have a limited focus on one part of the recruiting or talent process. Headstart, by design, extends further into the hiring process – working with job descriptions, candidate matching, screening, selection, and analytics.
Gareth shares details about the business, the product, and what’s next for Headstart.
