“We’re very excited about integrating Splinter profiles with VC4A.

At VC4A, we believe in putting entrepreneurs in control and giving them access to the best available tools and services.

For this reason, we recently launched VC4A Talent, a free recruitment service for startups.

We see as one of the top online tools for job seekers to put their best foot forward. Creating a professional, 360-degree profile with Splinter could not be simpler, and the results are displayed in less than a second. 

We’ve also followed the story of Splinter’s founders and had many positive interactions with Ahmed and Adelina, the two co-founders behind, so partnering with them to match job seekers with hiring companies was a natural fit.”
