Giraffe, crowned best South African startup 2015 by Seedstars World, will be attending the Seedstars Africa event in Casablanca, Morrocco on 30 Jan 2016.
The flagship event is bringing together more than 300 startup founders, investors, ecosystem players, leading corporations and successful entrepreneurs from Africa, Middle East, Europe and the US. The objective is to showcase the potential of Entrepreneurship in Africa, share insights and gain key learnings, foster collaboration and investment opportunities and enable valuable connections across the continent and around the world.
Giraffe founders Shafin Anwarsha and Bradley Cowie will be sharing their perspectives on how to scale up online marketplaces and discussing some of the challenges faced by African tech startups and how to overcome them.
Since launching their low-cost recruitment agency services in Johannesburg, Pretoria and the rest of the Gauteng area in early 2015, Giraffe has arranged interviews for over 9,000 jobseekers and placed candidates in jobs with hundreds of employers. Giraffe uses matching algorithms to source, screen, contact and schedule interviews. This significantly reduces both the cost and time of recruitment, enabling businesses to recruit medium-skilled staff faster and cheaper than any other way.
Giraffe plans to expand its low-cost recruitment services to Cape Town, Durban and the rest of South Africa in early 2016.
