HR Tech Pitch-Fest

HR Tech Pitch-Fest was a great hit. Gpayroll is the winner in this category while Mathilda and Ceipal were the runners-up. In this competition, startups emphasized on HR technology and covered a broadened scope of HR. Each startup was given five minutes to talk about how their product can solve a specific HR problem. After these presentations, the expert panel conducted a round of questions.
