TechInAfrica – A Washington D.C-headquartered company, Localized, has recently closed a $2.2m in a seed round which was completed in April 2021.
Trend Forward Capital, One Planet VC, Next Wave Impact, Bisk Ventures, Joshua Mailman, US News Digital Ventures, and Esther Dyson, and angel investors from Mexico led the seed round.
Quoted from The Capital Quest, a member of the leadership team at Next Wave Impact, Heather Henyon said customer satisfaction and the company’s traction are part of their consideration to investing in the global company.
“As companies look for diverse, world-class talent, Localized fills a critical need. We led this funding round after hearing from satisfied customers and seeing the traction first hand over the last two years.”
Localized is a global pool of talent search where the company provides the platform for both MENA and non-MENA members to get discovered by global companies, such as Microsoft and Deloitte. It is also a tool for universities and talent hubs to seek career information for their students and alumni.
Virtual career fairs and year-round recruitment are common within the platform usage, with team members managing the platform from Ramallah, Cairo, Amman, Prague, Lagos, SF, and Dubai.
As of now, Localized has total funding of $3.6m.
