THAI­LAND-BASED STAFFING PLAT­FORM EN­TERS IN­DONE­SIAN MAR­KET

The Jakarta Post - JPlus - - Lifestyle -

Thai­land-based startup Help­ster, the main fo­cus of which is to con­nect blue col­lar work­ers and em­ploy­ers, has just re­ceived US$2.1 mil­lion from In­done­sia’s Con­ver­gence Ven­tures and Sin­ga­pore’s Wave­maker Part­ners, as well as sev­eral other strate­gic in­vestors. The funds will be used mainly to de­velop prod­ucts and ex­pand into the In­done­sian mar­ket, said Help­ster, as quoted by dai­lyso­cial.id. The startup, which was founded in Jan­uary, uses a web­site and mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions — now avail­able in the In­done­sian lan­guage — to con­nect food and bev­er­age, hos­pi­tal­ity, event and lo­gis­tics busi­nesses with la­bor­ers, whether for tem­po­rary or per­ma­nent jobs.
