Romanian HR startup Undelucram receives 300.000 euros from GapMinder Venture Partners BV and Oana Ciornei, Managing Partner Amrop Romania & Global Amrop University Lead, Romanian media reported. The Undelucram team will use this funding for further expanding on the European market.
More precisely, as Costin Tudor, CEO & Founder at Undelucram.ro says, next on the agenda are the markets in Greece, Hungary and Czech Republic.
“We constantly want to actively contribute to educating young people in Romania, to guide them in preparing for an interview and finding their desired job, but also to meet the needs of companies wishing to attract the best talents by their side. Undelucram.ro is more than just a platform, it is a committed community with growth potential and with today’s investment we continue our natural development in other countries such as Greece, Hungary and Czech Republic”, says Tudor.
For the leading investor GapMinder, but also for Oana Ciornei, it is the potential that they see in this startup that made them support the Undelucram team.
“Undelucram.ro is the newest name added in our portfolio. We have provided this investment for the international development of this online platform as we see the potential to transform how both companies, job candidates or employees interact transparently on the labor market, “says Inti Paolucci, GapMinder Venture Partners BV.
“The way we work and how we get paid will face a lot of changes during the next years. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly important for whom we work. I am convinced that Undelucram.ro can provide answers to young people and professionals preoccupied by their future, who want to make informed choices about their carriers. It can also provide answers to companies who want to better position themselves among these professionals. I am equally convinced that the team of young Romanian entrepreneurs behind Undelucram.ro does have the ambition and skill that is needed for an exponential development” says Oana Ciornei, Managing Partner Amrop Romania & Global Amrop University Lead.
