Dutch candidate assessment technology The Selection Lab has raised €1.25 million in funding in a round led by Borski Fund and joined by a current investor Arches Capital. The funds will see the expansion of the company's tech and sales and boost marketing efforts.
Founded by wife and husband team Lotte Welten (CEO) and Joeri Everaers (COO), and Jordi Wippert (CTO) the startup gives HR tools without the need for HR experience. The platform can be integrated into existing HR software to analyse the soft skills of potential candidates - an alternative to selection solely on performance.
“Investing in The Selection Lab highlights our vision for the future of hiring – one that prioritises an objectivity, inclusivity, and fair process to ensure that organisations can confidently choose the best candidates for their success. This aligns with our core values of innovation, diversity, and the pursuit of excellence in finding the right individuals for organisations,” says Laura Rooseboom, Partner at Borski Fund.
