Gurugram, March 8, 2018: HireXP has succeeded in raising an undisclosed amount from Knowlarity CEO Ambarish Gupta. A British entrepreneur, Marina Zoltoverkh has also invested in the venture. Marina is an INSEAD alumnus.
The startup plans to use the capital to assemble a new product line, CamXP – Campus hiring and Inject AI in the existing platform. The funding will also boost product sales in existing markets and will be used to open new markets by the end of 2018.

According to an estimate, by the year 2021, HR Tech will be a $34 billion industry globally. US Market that currently forms approximately 60% of the market will have only 50% share by 2021 with APAC and MEA expected to contribute nearly one-third of the total international HCM business. That’s about $6.7 billion. As per industry experts, Japan and China together will be at $2.4 billion and MEA at $0.7 billion. The rest of APAC is estimated to be close to $3.6 billion of which India would be a billion-dollar market and the remaining $2.6 billion would be the ASEAN market. It implies that India’s HR Tech market will double up in the next few years.
HireXP is poised to tap into this billion-dollar pot of gold and emerge as the industry leader. With the new funds and backing, the startup is all set to step beyond the boundaries and make a mark.
