TalentNext.com, an online platform that connects talent like actors and screenwriters with recruiters, has secured a second round of funding of USD 1 million from angel investors.
Launched in July 2016, the platform focuses on providing recruitment within television, advertising, films and digital content.
“Our aim is to support and augment the growth of promising talent across the country. This investment helps us expand to hundreds of cities across India and beyond the typical metropolitan and tier I regions,” TalentNext.com CEO Shekhar Purohit said. According to Purohit, the talent discovery and recruitment platform has partnered with over 30 casting directors in Mumbai and has partnerships with industry bigwigs including Dharma Productions, OML, Culture Machine and Balaji Telefilms to name a few.
“In the next 4 to 6 weeks, we will expand to regional parts of India and focus on catering to the Maharashtrian, Telegu, Tamil and Punjabi users,” added Purohit.
