Indian startups continue to attract investor attention. B2B human resource platform Hyperhire, dietary supplements startup Power Gummies, and data science and analytics startup TheMathCompany are among the latest startups to have secured funding.

SpringCamp invests in Hyperhire

Hyperhire, a B2B human resource platform, on Thursday said it has secured $200,000 (about Rs 1.39 crore) in seed funding from Seoul-based early-stage venture capital firm SpringCamp.

The startup will use the funds to launch referral-based hiring service – JOBKET – in India, it said in a statement.

JOBKET will allow users to be able to access select job descriptions from top companies, to self-apply for jobs listed on its platform or recommend someone else. Initially, it will reach out to potential candidates in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, and gradually expand across the country.

Power Gummies gets seed funding

Aesthetic Nutrition Pvt. Ltd, which sells chewable dietary supplements under the brand Power Gummies, has raised $100,000 (Rs 70 lakh) from Alfa Ventures in a seed round of funding, VCCircle reported.

The startup will use the financing proceeds to scale up and launch a few other gummy health supplement variants in the near future, targeting different segments of the market, the report said.

TheMathCompany gets funding from Arihant Patni

Data science and analytics startup TheMathCompany Pvt. Ltd has secured an undisclosed amount in funding from entrepreneur and venture capitalist Arihant Patni.

Founded by Sayandeb Banerjee, Aditya Kumbakonam, and Anuj Krishna in September 2016, TheMathCompany will used the funds to expand its operations globally including the European and APAC markets.

The startup uses artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) to help organisations transform intelligence, create demonstrated value, and makes them analytically self-sufficient.
