On this auspicious day, TurboHire is delighted to announce that we have reached the milestone of attaining $2M funding for the pre-series A round.

Aman Gour – Co-founder, Product & Revenue, at TurboHire
In the last few years, I have come to realize that things happen only when you are ready for them.
Last year was a funding boom and cash was flowing in the market, but we weren’t ready.
There is funding winter right now, but we ended up raising an excellent round with a very good value.
We seem to be ready to grow exponentially and I feel that funding would just be the fuel we needed.
At TurboHire, we realize that we all have a rare opportunity to work on becoming the best version of ourselves while building the best recruitment automation platform while scaling the business globally.
We are not going to go easy on this.
The times to come will test our perseverance and grit. But the funny thing is we aren’t just ready for it, but we are looking forward to it.
We thank all the investors for putting your trust in us at this juncture and now it’s on us to ensure that you look back at this decision with a lot of contentment and maybe a little dissatisfaction that why didn’t you put more 🙂

How TurboHire came into existence
Post his successful exit from his first venture in The Bay Area, Deepak moved back to India and joined the ISB (Indian School of Business) as the Associate Director in the Career Advancement Services (CAS) team which is also known as the placement office in ISB.
During his entire 9+ years of experience with ISB, Deepak observed interacted, and learned both from recruiters and candidates regarding the recruitment processes, the struggles involved, and the information gap that existed between what the recruiters were seeking and what was mentioned in the resume of the candidates.
After understanding the need to close this gap, TurboHire was born which helped recruiters understand the 5 main questions about a candidate’s profile and experience such as: what, where, when, how, and how long.
Initially, TurboHire was built as a resume parser that could be easily integrated with any HR platform. However, as time went by there were more features being added to the platform which aided better solutions being provided to a lot of problems faced by recruiters. Finally, TurboHire is as you see today an end-to-end AI-powered recruitment automation platform.
