Morocco-based on-demand temporary staffing platform Jobop has raised $1 million in a seed round led by Azur Innovation Fund, with participation from Plug and Play, and business angels.
The round was closed in April this year. Jobop was launched early 2021. The funds will be used to further improve its tech product and expand to new countries, with a launch in Egypt planned before the end of this year.
It matches companies with blue-collar temporary workers through its proprietary algorithm in sectors such as hospitality, construction, logistics, and manufacturing.
The company says that it has seen a growth of over 80% on a quarterly basis. It said in a statement, “We’ve seen a phenomenal market response since our launch in 2021. The economic uncertainty surrounding Covid has forced a lot of companies to turn to temporary workers. Jobop has been simplifying and accelerating their experience of finding qualified and vetted workers”.
Adnane Filali, General Partner at Azur Innovation Fund said, “We are thrilled to invest in Jobop and support them in their ambition of becoming the leading temp staffing company in Africa. Not only are they building a robust business but will also be having an important social impact by providing jobs to thousands of Africans”.
