Egyptian startup Talents Arena, specializing in recruitment, has successfully raised a substantial $750,000 in pre-seed funding courtesy of UI Investments. This funding round also welcomed participation from angel investors hailing from Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Established by Aya Elgebeely in 2019, Talents Arena's primary aim is to streamline the hiring process for businesses operating in the Middle East and North Africa. Throughout its existence, the startup has notably facilitated the placement of numerous candidates into technology-related roles.

Spanning regions such as Egypt, Tunisia, South Africa, Uganda, Germany, and the Netherlands, Talents Arena's placements have been diverse and widespread. Notably, the company has previously secured $100,000 in funding from esteemed entities such as Flat6Labs and NilePreneurs, further expressing intentions to raise an additional $2 million to fuel its expansion ambitions.

This strategic boost is poised to further solidify their presence within the Saudi Arabian market, a region that already encompasses a significant 25% of their clientele. With an eye towards the future, Talents Arena seeks to introduce its innovative technology to a diverse array of businesses spanning Saudi Arabia and the broader Middle Eastern landscape. The overarching objective remains to assist hiring professionals in swiftly and accurately identifying top-tier talent while optimizing economic value.
