Globus.ai raises $4.8m to scale up and enter US market

Staffing AI company Globus.ai has announced that it has raised around $4.8m (£3.8m) from seed funding led by Alliance Venture and Scale Capital.

Globus says its funding came after it responded to the pressures of the pandemic by supporting healthcare and social care organisations to quickly place temporary staff into urgent roles.

Alongside healthcare and social care, Globus.ai’s staffing software has also been used in education, local government and the energy sector. 

The funding will allow Globus to scale in existing markets and also prepare for entry into the US, where 13.6 million people currently work in temporary and contract roles.

Part of the funding is also allocated to product development, where the firm is looking to strengthen its team with a head of product.

Helge Bjorland, CEO and co-founder of Globus.ai, said: “Now, more than ever before, organisations need a way to quickly find the talent they need to fill business-critical roles – and individuals are seeking meaningful work that interests them. Our mission has always been to empower people to succeed in the future of work and, as such, our Scandinavian AI is well-positioned to support workers and organisations with today’s pressures. Globus allows companies, and specifically recruiters, to instantly connect their candidates with relevant opportunities.”
