Commenting on the latest round of funding, Kanishk Shukla, Co-founder and CEO, said, “Our vision is to become a global skill cloud offering real-time hiring as a service to businesses worldwide. Our first solution tailored for the SMEs is an AI-powered virtual recruiter which uses proprietary algorithms, metadata and platform integrations to organically source and deliver top 10 job applicants within a few hours.”

The report further stated that this year, the company is planning to offer additional skill advisory solutions to business employees helping companies reskill, upskill, and retain professionals.

Adding to the comments, Sateesh Andra of Endiya Partners, said, “There is an urgent need for companies to hire better candidates sooner. Expertia AI-enabled ATS platform helps attract quality employees in less time. Kanishk and Akshay bring together a good mix of tech/AI and business/domain expertise to make this happen.
