Findem adds Gaurav Garg to its Board along with raising $7.3m Series A funding led by Wing Venture Capital

– USA, CA –  Findem is emerging from stealth mode with the launch of its People Intelligence platform, a data-driven approach that transforms the way companies define, retain, and get introductions to top talent, giving them a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Findem also closed a $7.3 million Series A funding round led by Wing Venture Capital to help propel its growth.

Concurrent with the financing, founding partner Gaurav Garg has joined the board.

People decisions are the most important decisions a company can make, and those made based on judgements, personal relationships, and other potentially biased factors can be costly. Findem is reinventing the talent acquisition and management process by equipping HR and other business leaders with the enriched insights they need to make strategic, data-driven people decisions.

“When companies start bringing people-centric data to bear on recruitment, skills gaps, diversity, talent development, performance, retention, and organizational structure, they thrive and their employees thrive,” said CEO, Hari Kolam. “The timing could not be better for Findem to drive the future of people intelligence, especially with the tailwinds of AI and BI at our backs. Our sights are set on helping companies turn their talent into a true business strategy and competitive advantage.”

Findem’s People Intelligence platform goes beyond traditional keyword searches by using augmented analytics to mine people data—from both publicly available sources and internal HR systems and tools—to uncover the real-world, intangible attributes that are essential to business success. It’s composed of two key components—Atlas and Compass.

“People are the heartbeat of our business. We’re constantly looking for more strategic, data-driven ways to build happier, more diverse teams and maintain our talent edge, which is why we’re so compelled by the people intelligence that Findem brings to the table,” said Ron Storn, chief people officer of KeepTruckin, a leading fleet management and freight marketplace company. “The ability to look at our internal people data under a new lens, to drill down into the precise attributes we want in our talent, and to build a broader, informed strategy around it—now that’s a powerful proposition.”
