Data science recruitment company Opening.io was named winner at NDRC Investor Day.
Opening.io won the top gong at NDRC Investor Day 2017, along with €30,000 in follow-on investment.
The company – founded in Dublin by two Romanian entrepreneurs, Andreea Wade and Adrian Mihai – has developed an AI platform that helps to narrow down recruitment candidate pools based on role-specific criteria.
Sonarc won the audience vote on the day due to the revolutionary nature of its technology.
The advice to the start-ups from the judges and mentors at NDRC was unanimous: get out there, sell and achieve validation in the market.
“The companies have the validation, they need to get more funding on board, and they need to focus on growth and scaling their proposition,” said NDRC CEO Ben Hurley.
