Dutch-Belgian startup Talmundo has impressed todo el mundo by securing € 500K growth financing for its online employee onboarding platform. The new funding comes from TIIN TechFund 3, which is managed by Dutch venture capital fund TIIN Capital. The HR-technology startup with its headquarters in the Hague will use the funds to roll out its employee onboarding app past the Benelux Borders into countries like Germany, the UK, Switzerland and Scandinavian countries.
Updating and revising outdated onboarding processes
Talmundo started out in 2012, initially as a builder of custom HR apps. In 2016 the company’s Flemmish CEO and cofounder Stijn de Groef decided to shift the company’s focus to onboarding. The idea behind Talmundo’s onboarding app is that joining a new company “doesn’t have to mean an overwhelming first week of endless meetings and death-by-presentations”. Talmundo turns introducing new employees into a company into an easier, more engaging and more professional process which is more fun and therefore more motivating for the new recruits: “Younger generations have grown up with well-designed, easy-to-navigate and almost flawless technology. But when they enter a new job at a large multinational, in comes the same clunky HR software system that has been around for years. Large multinationals spend millions on their hiring processes, so why frustrate new hires from the get-go?” says De Groef.
