2021 has become one of the most historic years in the history of recruitment technology. As labour shortages loom, the recruitment tech market is booming. As the desire for more candidates persists, more recruitment tech unicorns are born. In Q3 of 2021, six new suppliers reached the acclaimed 1 billion dollar valuation.
As more companies enter the market, the harder it becomes to really stay up-to-date about the latest developments.
Ranging from Remote, who saw its workforce grow quickly in lieu of the pandemic-driven remote hiring boom to Visier, who, with their predictive analytics technology now serve over 8.000 customers worldwide. As more suppliers enter the market — it’s getting increasingly harder to see the wood for the proverbial recruitment tech trees.
Enter UKRecruiter’s Louise Triance and podcasting veteran Chad Sowash. Every fortnight, starting January 12, 2022, Triance and Sowash will broadcast a 40-minute live show wherein they’ll grill recruitment tech providers. “We will be giving the lucky few, who get through the application process, a serious grilling and the audience can pitch in with questions too”, Triance commented.
Every episode will start with an elevator pitch from a respective tech provider. Followed by a discussion, audience questions, feedback and a summary.
The show, called Pitch Up, will be hosted on Crowdcast — and broadcasted live to audiences on LinkedIn and Facebook. In total, the pair aims to produce eight episodes per season. They will give eight suppliers the opportunity to convince both the experts, as well as the live audience. Every episode will start with an elevator pitch from a respective tech provider.

‘Diamonds in the rough’
“The recruitment tech industry is crowded, loud, and very overwhelming”, Sowash told ToTalent. “Louise and I are looking to help amplify startups we believe are interesting – possible diamonds in the rough. Pitch Up will provide a megaphone, of sorts, giving chosen startups an opportunity to pitch their business, model, GTM, and everything we can fit into 30 minutes.”

The show, sponsored by international Data & Tech company Intelligence Group, will primarily serve those in TA. But it is open to anyone interested, according to Sowash. “Our primary target group consists of talent acquisition professionals. Established core talent platforms (exploring acquisitions), investors, and anyone interested in the talent acquisition space.”
