Whoz Raises €25M in Funding


Whoz, a Paris, France-based SaaS solution delivering smart staffing and talent and project portfolio management for professional services companies and IT departments of large companies, raised €25 million in funding.

The round was led by PSG Equity.

The company intends to use the funds to double its headcount from 50 to 110 people by the end of the year, particularly in R&D, sales and marketing teams, as well as the client relationship team, and bolster its presence in the French market while expanding into new regions like the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom and India.

Founded in 2016 and led by Jean Philippe Couturier, CEO, Whoz provides a Talent and Staffing Management platform to professional services companies (IT services companies, consulting and auditing firms and engineering firms of all sizes) and IT departments for large companies, with more than 30,000 active users across more than 50 countries. With its Talent Cloud AI platform, the company maps a wide range of internal skills and talent available to service companies to efficiently allocate resources to meet the client’s needs. This gives companies in real-time an overview of their available talent pool to meet the market’s needs rapidly and effectively, thereby optimizing their business, supporting their growth and unlocking their talent.

Available in SaaS, the solution addresses the entire staffing process: skills mapping, team building, management planning and identification of skills gap trends in order to adjust recruitment and training plans. Whoz also enables activity forecasts based on staffing capacity.

Currently, Whoz’s technologies are implemented in more than 50 countries for large clients, including IT services leaders such as Devoteam, Egis, Open and Econocom, as well as for large project-based companies like Engie and Thales.
