Smarterer, a Boston, MA-based online platform designed to score individuals on their digital, social, and technical skills, has raised a $1.75m in Series A funding.
The round was led by True Ventures, with participation from Google Ventures and angel investors including Shikhar Ghosh, Russ Fradin, Mark Gerson and Scott Kurnit.
Co-founded by CEO Jennifer Fremont-Smith, Executive Chairman Dave Balter, and CTO Michael Kowalchik, Smarterer scores and validates digital, social, and technical skills, using crowd-sourced test design and an adaptive scoring algorithm. The platform allows hiring managers to rank candidates by their actual skills, and enables professionals to position themselves for employment based on what they really know.
In conjunction with the funding, Tony Conrad of True Ventures will join Smarterer’s Board of Directors.
