Contracts/Deals: ProFinda wins £300k from MITIE in ‘Dragons’ Den style’ contest
Thu, 31 May 2012
Outsourcing firm MITIE Group has awarded £300k of investment capital to ProFinda, an online talent matching website that uses the technology behind dating websites.
This award to the founder, digital innovator Roger Gorman, comes following a MITIE Millions pitching event organised by MITIE in front of an audience of 70 business people and three judges earlier this week (28 May) in London.
ProFinda won the investment ahead of four other entrepreneurs, including an energy-efficient office lighting solution and a training platform for educating people with diabetes.
Gorman left his job at communications agency network Draftfcb in 2011 to launch the company.
