Jobop, a Moroccan startup with an on-demand platform for temporary hiring, has closed a US$1 million seed round of funding to expand its “Workforce-as-a-Service” market.
Plug and Play Ventures, business angels, and Azur Innovation Fund all contributed to the seed round.
Jobop, which launched in early 2021, uses its own technology to link businesses with blue-collar temporary labor in industries like hospitality, construction, logistics, and manufacturing.
With a YoY gain in the funding of over 3000 percent and the signature of 4 more deals than Q1’22, the Enterprise Software sector in Saudi Arabia has displayed the most encouraging indicators this year.
“We are happy to support Jobop in their goal of dominating the African temporary employment market by investing in them. In addition to developing a strong business, they will also have a significant humanitarian impact by giving thousands of Africans jobs, according to Adnane Filali, the general partner at Azur Innovation Fund.
