Investment thesis

As HR technology shifts the boundary between the work performed by people and the work by machines and algorithms, companies are rapidly adopting new and emerging technologies to reach higher levels of employee efficiency and to compete with a global workforce composed increasingly of digital natives.

Technological advancements will fundamentally change existing business models and practices over the coming years, and these dynamics are set to become the primary drivers of opportunity for business growth in the future.

As the pace of workforce transformation and adoption accelerates, we believe there is a window of opportunity for early-stage investment into human capital technologies that will support businesses across all regions and industries achieve the vision for the future of work, ranging from the development of new applications for the gig economy to the adoption of common skills taxonomies across business and education.
