Watch this space as we learn and grow with the ambitious entrepreneurs with their next big ideas to disrupt the HR tech space.

About HR Tech Accelerator Program

Technology has transformed the world of work. Innovation is a key part of Hudson’s strategy for growth and we want to be at the forefront of the changing HR landscape, which is why we have partnered with Slingshot for a 12-week HR Tech accelerator program.

Slingshot brings together corporates and disruptive start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs to take innovative ideas and fast-track the process of turning them into products and services.

Hudson, alongside Seek, is a Platinum partner for the HR Tech program. The UTS Business School will be a Silver partner, while supporting partners are Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Alibaba Group and Microsoft BizSpark.

On the 4th April, teams across the globe pitched their ideas to a panel of judges for selection into the accelerator program. The ideas had to:

  1. Be original or disruptive idea or concept around our specific HR themes of casualisation & the future of the workplace; talent insights; employee experience; disruptive technology & business models.
  2. Operate in the technology sector and use the internet as the primary form of delivery and distribution.
  3. Demonstrate scalability with large market opportunity.
  4. Require minimal capital to develop a minimum viable product.

The winning teams embarked on a 12-week program from the 1st of May, where they will be supported by an incredible group of mentors and experts to turn their idea into a new product or service.

Slingshot’s past accelerator programs have been a huge success. Start-ups and scale-ups that have gone through their programs have a combined market capitalisation of more than $40 million. Over 80% are still active or have been acquired. Startups accepted into Human Capital will receive up to $50,000 from the Slingshot Investment Fund for 10 per cent of the equity in the business as well as training and resources, a support team of mentors and access to a co-working space.
