Innovative digital talent sourcing and on-boarding platform Gigged.AI secures investment to support further product development and team expansion

gigged ai logo.Fab news for tech startup Gigged.AI with the announcement that it has closed a £600k investment round to support its growth within the global AI talent marketplace. The funding round was led by early-stage venture capital firm Techstart Ventures with additional angel investment from other UK tech sector leaders who will now form a new Gigged.AI advisory board.

The Glasgow-based company’s AI-driven technology transforms the sourcing and on-boarding of tech talent in the gig economy by giving employers and on-demand talent a simple and effective way to connect and work together in the post-Covid 19 economy. Gigged.AI has developed unique algorithms that minimise geographical bias to match the most relevant on-demand talent to a specific statement of work, reducing onboarding time by six weeks and enabling projects to deliver faster and within budget.

CEO Rich Wilson said: “Since our launch in July 2021, the response to our product has surpassed our expectations and confirmed there is a substantial market for our proposition at a time when how we work is changing. Techstart and our other prominent investors are the ideal partners to help us scale to reach a much wider audience and further develop our offering to position us at the forefront of the global talent platform industry.”

Exciting times ahead for this innovative startup!
