Singapore career discovery platform Glints raised US$6.8 million in a Series B funding round, after impressing investors with their 6-time revenue growth in the past year.
The round was led by prominent Southeast Asia venture capital firm Monk’s Hill Ventures.
It was also joined by returning investors Wavemaker Partners, Fresco Capital and 99.co founder Darius Cheung, along with new investors including Hong Kong-based fund, MindWorks.
With the new funds, they’re planning for expansion to Vietnam and Hong Kong next.
Glints’ previous Series A round was held in 2016, with S$2.7 million raised.
According to Tech in Asia, this latest funding round puts the company’s valuation at about US$15.2 million.
Glints charges employers per successful hire scored through their online job listings, which are free to put up.
Heavily focused on young talents, they even have programmes under partnership with the various Polytechnics in Singapore to help students seek internships or full-time jobs upon graduation.
Besides connecting potential employees into the professional sector, they also differentiate themselves from typical job search portals by being a resource for career guidance and tips.
