HR Technologies have started to be used by companies for a few years. As new generations of employees are getting into the corporate world, managing the human capital is becoming harder, and pandemics have been making it even harder. To benefit from human capital efficiently and meet the needs of employees, companies need to use HRTech solutions. Our startup spotlight guest this week is Spiky.ai from the USA. Spiky.ai uses AI-based sentiment analysis to examine videos from online learnings/meetings to boost engagement. Founded in 2020, Spikey.ai is based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. Furkan Eriş, the co-founder, sat down to talk about their startup journey with us.
