FA Match, the wealth management industry’s only data-driven solution for financial advisor recruiting, today announced a $1M pre-seed funding round. The round includes investments from a variety of investors. FA Match is leading a new revolution of transparent, data-driven recruitment offerings for financial advisors and firms.
The platform’s proprietary Advisor MatchTM technology enables advisors and firms to connect with one another based on a series of match criteria – including AUM, transition needs/support, location, advisor experience, firm type, and more – and ranks those matches on a 1-3-star scale. Both parties are only alerted of the most viable matches, making the entire process more streamlined, action-oriented, and cost-effective.
FA Match will allocate this latest round of funding to robust marketing efforts, enabling the firm to more broadly and effectively connect with people across the entire wealth management ecosystem – including wirehouses, banks, RIA’s, RIA-hybrids, and OSJ’s. In 2021, FA Match also plans to launch more advanced industry analytic features to help advisors and firms gain access to real-time trends in compensation, M&A movement, and more.
Welcome, the HR software that helps organizations make and close offers to new candidates, announced the close of a $6 million seed round today, led by FirstMark Capital. Participating investors include Ludlow Ventures, Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg, and Keenan Rice and Ben Porterfield (which were existing investors), as well as a wide array of angels.
Welcome is also launching a new product today called Total Rewards, which helps not just new candidates but also existing employees get a complete, easy-to-understand picture of their compensation, across salary, benefits, equity, etc.
Welcome was founded in 2019 by Nick Gavronsky and Rick Pereira, with a mission to help organizations close offers on candidates by providing a much clearer picture of compensation, particularly around equity. Cofounder and CEO Nick Gavronsky explained that many candidates don’t truly understand the value of the equity they’re offered, or how it works.

London – Let’s Dive a platform for remote employee engagement and building team culture has today announced it has raised US$1.7 million in funding led by Sequoia Capital India’s Surge. The funding round also saw participation from Village Global and several angel investors1.
Let’s Dive will use the funding to further build experiences on the platform to help remote teams tackle isolation, distribute the product to thousands of companies around the world and build a cross-border product team.
The on-going global pandemic has upended traditional ways of working, forcing businesses all around the world to set themselves up remotely. Let’s Dive’s founders, who have been building solutions for remote teams for over five years, know from experience that isolation and the lack of team bonding are the biggest obstacles to successfully sustaining a remote work culture.
Let’s Dive is a platform that eliminates isolation by bringing teams together and recreating a social space where participants can connect through a range of exciting activities. This creates deeper bonds amongst remote teams who lack the advantage of personal connections. Teams can play games like poker, pictionary, icebreakers, trivias, chess, card games and organise YouTube watch parties.
Let’s Dive has already attracted over 100 teams from 28 countries to its platform. Currently, Let’s Dive is an invite-only experience. Companies can apply for access on www.letsdive.io.
Talkpush, the leader in recruitment automation, wants to work with companies that see their talent pool as their greatest competitive asset. Vervoe, the leader in skills assessments, is on a mission to reinvent the recruiting experience to make it effective, fair and enjoyable. The two companies’ complementary services help employers expand their talent pool, and build a better, more universal, and validated recruitment process. The companies are delighted to announce a partnership, supported by an integration between the two platforms, that will benefit its joint customers to help them identify the most suitable candidates faster, and give candidates more real-time visibility into the hiring process.
Talkpush users can now create workflows in which shortlisted candidates automatically receive a position-specific Vervoe assessment. With both platforms completely in sync, recruiters can now view candidates progress and assessment scores in real-time.
How it works
Candidates can apply through their preferred channel, be it Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or job boards on the company’s career site. Once they complete their pre-screening, they automatically receive the link to the position-specific Vervoe assessment. Once the assessment is complete, Vervoe automatically adds the score to the candidate profile inside Talkpush, so that recruiters can easily see it, share it and make the right decision.
