  • Canada-based all-in-one HR platform Humi announced it has raised C$15 million in funding, including both equity and debt

Canada-based all-in-one HR platform Humi is known for providing small to medium-sized businesses with HR, Payroll, and Benefits solutions. Recently, the company announced it raised C$15 million in funding, including both equity and debt. This round of funding was led by Tribe Capital.

In order to help meet the growing demand for its products and services, the funding will be used to further develop Humi’s software as Canada’s only true all-in-one people solution.

Due to COVID-19 bringing a new shift in traditional businesses adopting a remote-friendly work culture, there is more demand than ever for cloud-based employment solutions. And since March, Humi has seen an 80% increase in demand from companies looking to hire, onboard, pay, and track vacation all from within the cloud.

In 2016 via the Y Combinator startup accelerator, Humi’s mission is to make life easier for businesses and their employees through streamlining employment processes into an all-in-one people software. And while most HR tech companies build for customers in multiple countries, Humi has made the decision to be hyper-focused on the Canadian market and is supporting employers and employees with built-in product features that reflect the nuances of building and employing people within Canada. Plus Humi’s product consistently remains up-to-date with provincial government employment regulations while also offering education for employers on these updates.
