Theo-Leo Houston is absolutely thrilled to announce that Slinger, his London-based startup revolutionising the hiring process in the hospitality industry, has successfully raised a new round of £500,000 pre-seed funding, led by Fuel Ventures.
This funding round, includes participation from Ufi Ventures, Andrew Gale, Dan Cobley, CornerStone Partners, Resolution Foundation, Tim Parsons, Gary Elden, Ben Westwood, Richard Ng, and the Google for Startups Black Founders Fund, will enable us to further advance our mission of transforming the industry’s archaic hiring practices.
Says Theo: “With staff vacancies in the hospitality industry leaving £25 billion on the table, Slinger is committed to providing a solution. By paying hospitality staff the UK’s Real Living Wage for every shift and eliminating inefficient practices like trial shifts and CVs, Slinger has already paid out over £1m+ to hospitality workers!”
This funding round will ensure that Slinger can enhance its platform, drive client acquisition, and expand its team.
