Jobsgaar raises $140K from SucSEED Indovation Fund, others
Jobsgaar Technologies announced that it has raised $140,000 in a seed round from Hyderabad headquartered SucSEED Indovation Fund, and other angels including Rohit Chanana, Jasminder Singh Gulati, Poonam Kaul, Sunil Kamath, Mandeep Singh, and Gunjan Paharia.
Atul Pratap Singh, Founder and CEO, Jobsgaar, said, “We either see masses trooping in large cities in search of work opportunities or likely staying back at their place of origin doing odd jobs forever, driven by necessities. On the other hand, there is a section of employers, small scale businesses, enterprises, MSMEs, and millions of other unorganized pursuits who are struggling every day to find a local workforce for their job responsibilities.”
“All these people rely either upon word of mouth, referrals or verbal commitment or classified ads. Jobsgaar is an endeavor to digitally enable this community of people to connect and minimize the void between a local employer and a primary job hunter.”
Founded in May 2020 by Atul Pratap Singh, Jobsgaar addresses the impact of job loss and helps employers connect with the workforce locally. The startup claims to have been focussing on about 15 districts from UP and Bihar to explore the potential.
“From these towns, we’ve been able to onboard over 10,100 job seekers and 170+ employers with over 6,500 connections/conversations in between employers and job seekers. What is enticing for us is that over 65 percent of these job seekers are graduates and 14 percent have a post-graduate or equivalent degree. The candidates with a qualification of up to 10+2 stand currently at around 21 percent. The average age of the job seekers is 27 years,” Atul added.
Atul added that with the primary focus on technology, Jobsgaar would like to connect local workers who leave their hometowns for work and employers who need to hire a workforce without any delay, with an easy solution.
Dhiraj Kumar Sinha, Co-founder and Partner, SucSEED Indovation Fund, said: “Talent recruitment is a big challenge in Tier II-IV cities and towns. We believe easy to adopt Jobsgaar’s technology can lead to the re-kindling of localized economies and increase employment by enabling micro-entrepreneurs to scout talent effortlessly. This would further ensure that Tier I cities are not overcrowded, and job opportunities are made available closer to home.”
Jobsgaar appears to be an interesting platform helping several jobseekers find the right jobs without leaving their hometown. This is a great initiative and will surely benefit several people. I’m sure the company will reach great heights. My best wishes to the team of jobsgaars.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
