Belgian recruitment startup Sympl has raised €1.1 million. The investment was led by KBC Start IT Fund, with participation from the Ark Angels Activator Fund, imec, and business angels including Jan Verbeke and Christiaan Thoma.
Sympl integrates chatbots and video into its platform to connect job seekers and companies. Job candidates are given questions through a chatbot, and their profiles are updated according to a data analysis of their answers.

Sympl will use the new capital to expand its team and to further develop its chatbot with artificial intelligence and language recognition.
