Jibe Pitching to Investors in New York

Posted By Todd Raphael On October 26, 2012 @ 3:28 pm In News and Features | No Comments

[1]The recruiting technology startup Jibe was one of 30 companies selected to pitch to New York venture capitalists [2] November 7-8.

There were more than 300 applicants in all kinds of industries. Those selected include a new doctor’s portal, an iPad magazine, and a manicurist company that works with HR departments to fancy up nails at people’s workplaces.

Jibe started a couple years ago [3] as employee referrals and social media began to meld together. It then played up its mobile capabilities [4], particularly now as an antidote to poor smart-phone candidate experiences. Some experts, like David Martin, are quite bullish on Jibe as a tool to apply for jobs with a mobile phone [5].

AOL’s CEO Tim Armstrong, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, and Clear Channel’s CEO Bob Pittman will be at the New York event [6], which’ll include pitches and keynotes.
