Technology has transformed the world of work. Innovation is a key part of Hudson’s strategy for growth and we want to be at the forefront of the changing HR landscape, which is why we have partnered with Slingshot for a 12-week HR Tech accelerator program.
Slingshot brings together corporates and disruptive start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs to take innovative ideas and fast-track the process of turning them into products and services.
Hudson, alongside Seek, is a Platinum partner for the HR Tech program. The UTS Business School will be a Silver partner, while supporting partners are Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Alibaba Group and Microsoft BizSpark.
Next week, on the 4th April, teams across the globe will pitch their ideas to be selected for the accelerator program with ideas that:
- Are an original or disruptive idea or concept around our specific HR themes of casualisation & the future of the workplace; talent insights; employee experience; disruptive technology & business models.
- Operate in the technology sector and use the internet as the primary form of delivery and distribution.
- Demonstrate scalability with large market opportunity.
- Require minimal capital to develop a minimum viable product.
The winning teams will spend 12 weeks in Sydney, starting on the 1st May, where they will be supported by an incredible group of mentors and experts to turn their idea into a new product or service.
Slingshot’s past accelerator programs have been a huge success. Start-ups and scale-ups that have gone through their programs have a combined market capitalisation of more than $40 million. Over 80% are still active or have been acquired.
