Singapore HR tech firm secures funding
Home-grown HR software company StaffAny has been given $1 million in funding from an investment company and angel investors. The startup created a workforce management app that connects HR and operations to better manage hourly workers. It is proving a hit in the labour-intensive food and beverage (F&B) and retail sectors.
StaffAny was co-founded in early 2018 by four friends – alumni of the National University of Singapore (NUS) Overseas Colleges (NOC) Programme. It has previously received grant funding totalling $75,000 from investors including NUS, Enterprise SG and StartupX – a pre-accelerator programme in partnership with Singapore’s investment company, Temasek.
The fresh injection of $1 million, from technology investment company FreakOut Holdings and angel investors, will be used to support the company’s growth and expansion plans. StaffAny aims to get 10% of Singapore’s F&B market share, and then expand overseas.
Its software schedules staff and provides an on-site time clock, smart time sheets, leave applications and real-time reports.
