Qualifi, an on-demand screening platform allowing recruiting teams to phone interview hundreds of candidates in minutes, today announced that it raised $2.5 million in Series Seed financing. Rally Ventures led the round with participation from repeat investors Techstars, Sixty8 Capital, Elevate Ventures, Debut Capital, and Flywheel Fund, as well as newcomers Northwestern Mutual Black Founder Accelerator powered by gener8tor, Converge, Service Provider Capital, and multiple strategic angels.
“Phone interviews are one of the biggest bottlenecks in the recruiting process. Back and forth scheduling and lengthy phone screens with hundreds of candidates quickly add up and can be costly — especially amidst a talent shortage where every minute and candidate interaction matters,” said Darrian Mikell, CEO and Co-Founder of Qualifi. “This incredible team of investors will support our next stage of growth at a critical time in the world of employment and talent acquisition.”
Qualifi’s audio-based platform enables recruiters to phone screen multiple candidates simultaneously, resulting in faster time-to-hire (up to 8 days faster) with a more convenient, accessible, and unbiased hiring experience.
Qualifi will use the financing to advance its product with additional AI, ML and Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities and expand go-to-market efforts with marketing and sales to support its rapid growth.
