Mynavi Corporation, one of the top media firms in Japan for HR and lifestyle information, has invested in the edtech and job assistance company AccioJob further to increase its presence in the human resources industry.
Mynavi Corporation aims to make a difference at the community level in the area of people and work and believes that this new partnership with AccioJob may help democratise the employment process. AccioJob is a Gurugram-based firm that offers placement services for students, institutions, and businesses. IIT Delhi grads founded it. Over 1,000 students have been placed by AccioJob’s training programmes in more than 300 IT organisations in the last year.
“Through our recent funding, our objective is to expand and strengthen industry partnerships and boost awareness within the student community to keep propelling growth,” said Yashwardhan Burad, CEO of AccioJob
AccioJob wants to simplify hiring first-year students by elevating them to the top of the tech and development recruiting food chain and assisting businesses in lowering deployment costs. The group believes that this relationship will help them further fulfil their mission.
“At AccioJob, our mission is clear: to provide top-tier education, mentorship, and optimal career opportunities to students from any background. Regarding the social effect of this partnership with Mynavi, Burad continues, “Our collaboration with Mynavi reinforces this commitment, helping millions of Indian students to develop their skills, unleash their potential, and get the jobs they deserve.
Mynavi’s most recent initiatives aim to close the skills gap between professionals and new graduates. Mynavi invested in the enterprise gig startup Awign because it thought its steady development would benefit India’s gig HR market.
Mynavi also oversaw the $5 million initial investment round for Unstop, a student and graduate community participation and employment platform. Venture Catalysts and other Unicorns also participated in the funding round, enabling Unstop to transition from bootstrapped to finance.
