Genesys Talent LLC, a Houston-based provider of talent acquisition technology platform, closed $2.1m in seed funding.
Twelve investors including undisclosed angel investors and employees participated in this first round of funding.
The company plans to use the capital to grow the team, invest in additional technology development, and enhance existing Talent Cloud technologies and processes.
Led by Rick Roberts, President and Founder, Genesys uses a combination of patent pending processes and web technology to create and curate communities of top talent with specific skills and experience aligned to customer demand. These “Talent Clouds” can then be presented to the enterprise’s hiring managers for review, selection, and engagement via mobile responsive portals.
The company has established formal strategic partnerships with numerous industry players such as Vendor Management Systems (VMS) and workforce program Managed Service Providers (MSP).
Michael T. Willis, Chairman of the Genesys board, is a majority investor in the company.
