Shortlist, a talent screening company based out of Mumbai, has recently acquired $2 million (INR 14.2 Cr) in a Series A funding round spearheaded by Blue Haven Ventures, alongside Zephyr Acorn, Compass Venture Capital, Potencia Ventures, and others.

The company plans to use the funds to expand outreach to job seekers, improve its algorithmic matching, and expand geographically.

Founded in 2016 by Simon Desjardins, Paul Breloff and Matt Schnuck, Shortlist screens candidates using predictive chat-based interviews and online competency-based assessments. The company boasts of clients such as Ather Energy, Dunzo, ITC Ltd, DHL, and Toppr, UberEATS.

Paul Breloff, Co-founder and CEO of Shortlist, said, “We’re focused on finding the right measure of tech-powered scale and human-driven curation to build the best teams, with a focus on quality over quantity. This round and our new partners will help us accelerate our efforts to get employers to ditch the CV in favour of more predictive measures of fit.”
