You may have heard the news already. We are excited to share that Greylock IL has led the latest, $1.5m funding round of Workable, along with Jeremie Openfund II and other private investors also participating.
We first invested in Workable 12 months ago. Since then, Nikos and Spyros have been out on a mission to build a world-class team and a top-notch product out of Athens, Greece. If you have used Workable before, you probably are aware of the results. If you haven’t yet, and you run a business or are about to do some hiring, go give it a try. One thing is for sure; what you think about recruitment will never be the same again.
When you take such a tedious process (think of piles of pdf resumes and excel files as the industry standard) and you improve it to the point that people want to experience it again and again, then you probably are onto something interesting. And, in this context, getting a partner of the caliber of Greylock IL and Laurel Bowden on board comes naturally as the next step.
Make no mistake, this is not the end of the road, or a success per se. As Spyros has put it, nice shoes can only get you so far when you are running a marathon. The most difficult part starts now, and we have plenty of good reasons to strongly believe it will also be the most exciting one. Onwards!
