LIFT, the innovative talent matching solution, welcomes its new investor Sapienza Consulting

LIFT BV, the start-up that developed and launched the innovative talent matching solution LIFT, announces that it has a new investor: Sapienza Consulting Holding BV, the holding company of the Sapienza Consulting (Holding BV) Group.

LIFT BV was founded by Nicole van Haelst and Robbert Dijkstra and developed an innovative app that, in a playful and engaging way, identifies what drives people in terms of values, competencies and aspirations. Based on that, the Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine suggests opportunities that match the user’s passion, purpose and potential.

In view of the disruptive potential of the app in the recruitment sector, LIFT BV had already secured seed investment and support from the City of The Hague, Leiden University, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the International Community Platform – ICP.

Having Sapienza as a new investor will enable LIFT’s growth potential to be even higher due to the synergies and knowledge sharing. Especially because Sapienza Group’s commercial director – Andrea Bennetti – will join the LIFT Board. 

“We are excited to be partnering with LIFT, a truly innovative start-up that brings to the Sapienza group of companies, new competences in software AI, Machine Learning and Big Data, while also fitting naturally with our core business area of Manpower, where we believe the LIFT app will be a game-changer. We are sure that our networks, our customers and business partners will recognize the same potential that we have seen in LIFT and will adopt it without hesitation.”, said Andrea Bennetti.

Nicole van Haelst highlighted how much LIFT’s expansion can benefit from Sapienza’s “international connections that are likely to facilitate LIFT’s entrance in new markets, especially in exciting sectors like Defence and Aerospace, which have been generating a lot of innovation and attracting attention and talent”.
