Eqtble’s human resources analytics platform can collate data from over 100 sources and deliver insights and visualizations in the area of talent recruitment, workforce, engagement metrics such as attrition and compensation. It also helps HR teams to identify why top candidates decline their job offers. According to TechCrunch, eqtble would use the seed funding to grow its engineering team, its machine-learning, visualization capabilities, and improve user acquisition. 

Joseph Ifiegbu, co-founder and CEO of eqtble, opined that data-driven decisions ultimately build a new company. Commenting on the investment, Jennifer Wolf, president, and partner at Initialized Capital, opined that critical organizational issues such as DEI or equitable compensation are not merely checkboxes that companies can tick. 

Companies willing to make that commitment shouldn’t have to wait months or be discouraged by the financial investment it takes to understand the data they already own to make these meaningful changes. The eqtble team knows how to solve this, and they’re empowering other companies to do so
