Paraform Secures $3.6M Seed Funding to Empower Laid-off Recruiters and Connect Startups with Talent


 Paraform Secures $3.6M to Connect Startups

Paraform leverages a vast network of independent recruiters to bridge the gap between startups and top-tier talent, following a surge in tech layoffs.

Paraform, a recruitment platform tailored for startups, has raised $3.6 million in seed funding to capitalize on a growing pool of independent recruiters, many of whom were displaced during the wave of tech layoffs in 2022 and 2023. The funding round was led by A*, a venture capital firm founded by Kevin Hartz, co-founder of Eventbrite, Xoom, and Airbnb's inaugural investor.

The tech industry witnessed significant layoffs during 2022 and 2023, with up to half of recruitment teams being cut by various firms. Recognizing this untapped potential, Paraform aims to empower laid-off recruiters who have transitioned to independent roles by connecting them with startups in need of talent.

John Kim, CEO of Paraform, highlighted the unique opportunity presented by this shift in the recruitment landscape. "The 2022 and 2023 tech layoffs resulted in 100,000 recruiters being laid off, leading many to establish their own recruiting businesses," Kim stated. "These independent recruiters possess valuable skill sets and extensive networks, creating new avenues for collaboration."

Paraform's innovative approach to recruitment not only supports startups in sourcing top-tier talent but also offers a lifeline to independent recruiters seeking new opportunities in an evolving industry landscape. With the recent seed funding, Paraform is poised to further expand its reach and impact in the recruitment ecosystem.
