The organization joined Nairobi Garage in September 2015 and has been an active member ever since. They have continually aimed to change the landscape of job search and recruitment in Africa, providing AI-powered personalized guidance to individual users, and talent acquisition and data services to organizations.
Over the last five years, it has become the most popular career development platform in Kenya and has expanded to Uganda in 2018. In early 2020, they raised a EUR3.4 million (US$3.86 million) Series A funding round. Later in the same year, Fuzu was listed on Holon IQ’s first annual EdTech 50 in September 2020.
Initially, the main challenge Fuzu has faced was getting the buy-in from employers who were still used to the traditional methods of recruitment. Luckily for the organization, the world is now evolving to the digitization and most companies are appreciating the importance of digitizing the recruitment process and this shift of mindset has worked in our favor.
Fuzu’s ambition remains to revolutionize how job markets operate and how people build careers. The organization continues to grow into the go-to platform for professionals, irrespective of their level of seniority or educational background.
