British boxer David Haye has invested in recruitment app Syft, the company announced on Wednesday.
The app lets people apply to work at hospitality and events jobs, often for a set number of shifts.
The company says it can save its clients 55% in temp worker fees, and the average hourly salary for staff is £9.25.
“Supporting British entrepreneurs is really important to me, especially those who are the driving force behind tech and growth-focused businesses.” Haye said in a statement. “I not only invested in Syft’s vision, but I also recognised the
company’s work ethic and dedication to success.”
Other investors in Syft’s £2.65 million seed round include Profounders Capital, Lord Young, Mike Kershaw, and founders from Gamesys, Velocity, and CloudVolumes. Profounders Capital is the VC fund created by entrepreneurs including Michael Birch and Brent Hoberman.
