Monster.com, a Quess company and online talent platform, has raised 137.5 crore in a funding round led by Akash Bhanshali (Volrado Venture Partners) and Mohandas Pai (Meridian Investments) with participation from Quess. Post the funding round the company is valued at close to $100 million.

The current close has been done at 112.5 crore with an option built-in to expand the round to 137.5 crore.

The funds raised will be utilized towards enhanced investments in product development and marketing in India, SEA and Middle East markets. The company said the investment will allow it to evolve from a job-board into a talent platform delivering a full-stack experience for both candidates and companies.

Sekhar Garisa, CEO – Monster.com, APAC & ME said, “The last year has been incredible for the company, achieving very healthy growth across all metrics. We have an exciting product and business road map in line with our view on how hiring will evolve in the next few years. The participation of visionary investors with long term outlook is a tremendous vote of confidence in Monster’s ability and vision in building India’s premier talent market place platform.”

As employers also prepare for a new decade and an employee-first mindset, the platform will help them create a differentiated experience and build deeper relationships with their teams from day one. Meridian Investments is proud to partner with Monster.com in this exciting and important vertical.”
