Mentessa wins Gold at the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards 2022
Mentessa, the platform that connects employees for learning and collaboration based on skills, was recognized by the Brandon Hall Group Excellence 2022 Awards. The event occurred online on 8 December 2022.
The Excellence Awards honors the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools and have achieved measurable results. Mentessa was awarded in the Technology Fall Program which has a dedicated focus on entries from solution providers offering technologies to learning, talent management, talent acquisition, HR and workforce management. Winners of the Excellence in Technology Awards are scheduled to be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2023, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida.
The HR tech startup won Gold in the category Best Advance in Social Learning Technology as it helps build a connected, learning culture in distributed teams. As the new work era progresses, creating bonds and developing a collaborative culture is becoming a competitive advantage for every organization. This recognition marks a new milestone towards shaping the future of work and proving that new-age platforms can provide a viable solution for businesses to engage with their employees on a new level.
Founded in 2019 by Tina Ruseva and Andrey Andreev, the German start-up closed its first VC round in February, raising 1M€ from Eleven Ventures. Next to media mentions in influential regional publications, the startup has been endorsed by NASDAQ for creating equal opportunities in the workplace. Since its fundraising success in February, the startup has expanded internationally and was recently nominated for the UNLEASH World Startup Award. The international award will help the company’s global mission to remove barriers for learning and collaboration.
Tina Ruseva, CEO and Founder at Mentessa, said, „We’re thrilled with the progress made in 2022, and are elated to have been named Gold winners at the Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology 2022 Awards. When we entered, we knew we would be up against some pretty big players, so it’s a true honor to have done so well. Ending 2022 with this achievement feels fantastic.”
