Bryq, an Athens, Greece-based talent assessment platform, closed its €1.2m seed funding. The round was by BigPi Ventures.
Bryq offers a science-backed talent assessment platform to help companies remove bias from hiring and meet employer demand by enabling companies to hire for the specific skills required for each role.
“The effects of the COVID-19 crisis have highlighted the systemic barriers faced by well-qualified candidates, who are struggling to get a foot in the door while companies are struggling to develop and implement bias-free hiring processes,” said Markellos Diorinos, CEO, Bryq. “This investment round from BigPi will allow Bryq to make simple, bias-free hiring available to more companies.”
The company, which launched its platform last October after two years of research, development, and validation, intends to use the funds to grow its reach and further refine its product offering.
