The Seedstars competition, which aims to find the best startup across 52 emerging markets, held its South Africa finals at the Standard Bank incubator in Johannesburg on 17th July. Giraffe was one of 12 tech startups from across the country to pitch in the finals, and managed to take first place at the event. An overview of the event is shown in this video, which features Shafin Anwarsha, Head of Product at Giraffe.
Giraffe’s fully automated recruitment service connects medium-skilled jobseekers with opportunities and enables businesses to recruit workers- such as waiters, drivers, factory workers, call centre agents and admin staff- faster and cheaper than any other way. Since launching their recruitment agency service in Johannesburg, Gauteng in early 2015, Giraffe has acquired over 40 thousand qualified candidates, sent job interviews to several thousand of them and helped businesses in Johannesburg recruit several hundred permanent staff.
