Talent recruitment platform Kula has raised $12 million in seed funding. Sequoia and SquarePeg were part of the funding round along with existing investors such as Venture Highway and Together Fund.
The platform is based out of California, USA and has registered offices in Chennai, India, works on automating outbound recruitment and making referrals smooth and effortless. The team of twelve has built a talent pool of candidates from Linkedin, GitHub and other employee networks and then automated all communications across multiple channels (emails, InMails, LinkedIn connection requests) for the client's use.
Founded in 2021 by Achuthanand Tanjore Ravi, the recruitment platform has secured $15 million through pre-seed and seed funding now and has built a waitlist of over 1200 brands.
The start-up will utilise the funding to hire more talent from Singapore, India and US and expand its platform by filling all the gaps in the recruitment workflow and removing all efficiencies in the stack
Kula enables organisations to forecast and measure their talent pipeline much more accurately by analytics. It helps them to create an exclusive, internal pool of existing employees' first-degree connections called Circles.
