Investing and growing leading technology software & services firms in the recruiting industry.

Recruiting Ventures was born out of the desire to make an impact and change the recruitment industry.  We’re operators, with extensive experience in employment media and software.  Our companies have served hundreds of millions of job seekers, tens of thousands of employers through the years, and have sold hundreds of millions of dollars of software.

Our portfolio is made up of leading software and services companies who are passionately committed to changing the recruitment industry - one employer and one job seeker at a time.  We’re a closely held firm, and have both majority and minority stakes in our companies. We are looking to expand our portfolio with innovative companies where our experience, relationships, leadership, or capital can help other organizations grow.
