TalentQL Raises $300,000 Pre-Seed Funding Led by Zedcrest Capital

TalentQL, an African-focused talent outsourcing and incubator company, has raised $300,000 in a Zedcrest Capital-led pre-seed funding round.

The business, which was launched by the co-founders of Techpoint Africa, Jobberman and DevCareer in November 2020, is set to establish a pool of quality talents for African companies, as well as source and manage top local talents from Nigeria for leading global firms

The company’s model includes building talent campuses in less crowded African cities with proximity to top tertiary institutions, which combine to provide a fertile environment for talent development.

Adewale Yusuf, CEO, TalentQL, in a comment said, “Our mission is to help progressive companies build solid remote teams and a pipeline of quality talent. This pre-seed funding allows us to kickstart this mission and we are convinced that what we are doing at TalentQL will change the African talent landscape.

We believe that talent is Africa’s greatest export and as such needs to be developed and refined. With over 60% of the Nigerian population under the age of 25, there is no better place than this country to begin building a home for Africa’s top talent.

We are grateful to the investors that are betting on us for the journey, our lead investor Zedcrest Capital and some of the known entrepreneurs and investors like Kola AinaProsper Otemuyiwa, etc.”

CEO, Zedcrest Capital, Adedayo Amzat, said “We are excited to be backing TalentQL, the 20th firm in our Ventures at Zedcrest initiative. African talents are undoubtedly competing favourably globally, and TalentQL’s work will expand the available talent pool to further improve Africa’s representation in the global technology talent space.

“It is a no brainer to be betting on the team behind the TalentQL, they are entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses, and we have no doubt they will replicate the same success here.”
