High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) portfolio company MoBerries raises seven-digit Pre-Series A for its AI-based HR platform from international investors.

June 25, 2019

  • MoBerries, headquartered in Berlin, closes a seven-figure funding round from the Abu Issa Investment Group, HTGF, 42CAP, LITTLEROCK and other renowned business angels.
  • MoBerries continues to develop & expand in Germany, solving the inefficiencies in the HR market with the AI-based automated preselection of applicants.

 

MoBerries builds technology which connects actively seeking candidates to companies by leveraging an AI-based matching engine. The engine adapts the sourcing of candidates based on the feedback generated by recruitment managers throughout the hiring process. In Germany, MoBerries is already being utilized by over 1.000 companies.

The technology leverages network effects in order to enable the efficient sharing and recommending of applicants amongst groups of companies. Shared Talent Pools have already been set up for the German-based investment fund HTGF, as well as in Canada, Luxembourg and other markets which will go live later this year.

With this financing round MoBerries will on the one hand focus on expansion and strengthening partnerships with global technology providers, such SAP while on the other hand doubling down on its offering to candidates.

Building on the momentum of its Jobbot.me chatbot with over 1.5 million users, the firm sees itself as more than a sourcing channel, but rather as the “sports agent” for recruitment. The aim is to stimulate the job market by letting anyone who wants to work get matched to fitting roles but also be provided with feedback as well as opportunities to improve their skills through additional courses and training. MoBerries has begun to roll out a candidate feedback feature which empowers candidates by helping them understand why they are not being hired and suggesting how to further improve or acquire new skills. This is done thanks to partnerships with online courses and universities, such as CodeDoor.
