Estonian HR tech startup VideoCV raises €410,000 pre-seed investment round

VideoCV, a startup offering simple, transparent, and personality-based hiring solutions, said it has raised 410,000 euros in the pre-seed investment round from Zenith Family Office, EstBAN, Startup Wise Guys and several other investors to enter new markets and further develop its product.

VideoCV is an Estonian-based B2B start-up, offering an AI-powered video screening tool to screen and manage candidates within teams, saving time and offering a simplified solution to recruit remotely, while understanding people’s personalities at the first stage of the process.

VideoCV has replaced traditional cover letters with short asynchronous “Cover Videos”, “ moving the personality, character, and motivation to the very beginning of the recruiting process.’’

’What really counts for organizations is individual personality, character, and motivation for a specific job. The traditional recruiting process unveils these elements only at the very late process stage, during a personal interview,” Velling said in a statement.

VideoCV’s customers include large corporations like Sportland, Ericsson, and government agencies among others.
