AKT is thrilled to announce that we have chosen four HR Tech startups in our 2019 group of companies to join a 10-week accelerator program.

The AKT LABS HR Tech Startup Accelerator provides mentoring from technical and business experts, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, partners and investors, and access to AKT customers. It also offers a global network of startup contacts. The accelerator is run by members of AKT’s innovation, people advisory and HR cloud teams.

Putting the 2nd batch of HR Tech startups through their paces

40 applications submitted AKT LABS’ first batch.

10 exciting startups were shortlisted.

4 startups were selected to participate in AKT LABS’ 2nd batch.

The HR Tech startup lineup

The four startups to make up the first cohort include:

  • Eloops – Gamified internal communication platform
  • OnePep – Digital cloud-based employee experience management platform
  • YouRight – AI-based payroll compliance engine
  • Skillera – Crowd-sourced engineering skills assessment test development

“Based on the success of our first cohort, we are impressed at this very strong group of startups, who we believe are going to change the HR Tech space. Each of these startups is well positioned to leverage AKT’s HR domain expertise and global mentor network to solve some of the biggest workplace challenges global organizations face,” said Dror Gurevich, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at AKT.

This second batch of startups to be selected for AKT LABS, will now enter a matchmaking stage being paired up with the right advisors and mentors per the scope of their startup and business need. The 10-week program commences on 13 May and includes Industry Day, when startups will present an updated pitch, focused on problem definition and their proposed solution, and Demo Day, when startups will pitch for investors and stakeholders, following the program completion.
