“Increasingly, professionals in talent-focused businesses need a responsive, agile, and streamlined suite of technology that optimizes and automates core processes. Crelate, with its modern stack and platform-first approach, stands out in a crowded field,” said Joe Onofrio, Managing Director at Five Elms Capital. “Crelate has rapidly built a solid reputation as an industry leader. This additional funding aligns with our long-term view of the importance of this market and will help Crelate transform the way the talent industry serves its clients and candidates.”
