In the 1990's, as a co-founder at CareerBuilder.com, our co-founder Andrew Evans helped take jobs from newspaper ads to the web, which was then an emerging technology. Today, we are propelling job recruitment from the web to mobile. Since our inception in 2014, our journey has led us to hiring great staff and working with the incredible team at Startupbootcamp, which provided the impetus to setup shop in the Netherlands. Now, in what feels like an incredibly short time, we have met and are working with investment bankers in Germany, Canada and the USA, leading up to our recent public market listings. With this award, which is a big deal here in the tech sector here in Europe, we are confident that we will rapidly gain commercial visibility and momentum both in Europe and North America in the coming months."
Chief Product Officer and co-Founder of StartMonday, Andrew Evans, adds, "Ray's extensive background and enthusiasm for the recruitment industry is a phenomenal asset and really helped make the Startupbootcamp experience huge for us. We are so proud to be part of the alumni family of the largest startup accelerator in Europe. Now, as we look ahead, we can report that our product is already in the hands of several leading corporate prospects and the feedback has been excellent. We are now in the process of converting our trial partners into customers, and we couldn't be happier as we look toward 2017."
