Jobizo, a workforce aggregator platform for the healthcare sector that offers on demand/hyperlocal recruitment opportunities in the healthcare sector, has secured a funding of $500K in the seed round. The round was led by Aroa Venture and saw participation from VeritasX along with other angel investors. The platform plans to utilize these funds to lead expansion in other cities of India, hiring and marketing. The healthcare platform is planning to raise another round of funding in the next 4 to 6 months.
Jobizo is an application where healthcare professionals can find jobs as per their need. The platform does not charge any fee from the workforce to find jobs through its application. It is an AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) driven aggregator platform for recruitment in the healthcare sector. The firm targets to nurture the healthcare ecosystem by providing a digital workforce augmentation platform. As of now, the healthcare recruitment sector is primarily dependent on traditional recruitment processes which led to a huge workforce gap in this segment.
“ With this funding amount, we are planning to build the required infrastructure to support the growing demands of the healthcare industry. We are trying to create a welcoming environment for the workforce that can help in efficiently minimizing the skill gap in the healthcare industry,” stated Naveen Trehan, Co-Founder and Chairman of Jobizo.
“ There is a massive shortage of healthcare professionals in the country and our platform is working towards bridging this gap. Jobizo will deploy the funding capital to expand its services in other cities of India. Further, the amount will be used in new hiring and marketing processes for the brand. The capital will also be invested to provide self learning-based training programs for the workforce through its portal,” said Avishek Agarwal, Co-Founder and CEO of Jobizo.
“Gig workers provide businesses with tremendous flexibility to scale and meet demand. With the demand for healthcare professionals in India increasing and the general shortfall in qualified healthcare professionals. It is imperative that innovative solutions like Jobizo help bridge the gap. A large percentage of healthcare professionals become inactive due to family and life stage commitments,” stated Gaurav Gulati, Managing Partner, Aroa Venture Partners.
