Angel investment firm VentureSouth is investing in Sentio, a Greenville- and Charleston-based software-as-a-service human resources tool.

Sentio’s proprietary platform aims to make the hiring process more effective by discovering what top performers within an organization have in common, then using that data as a benchmark for future hiring, according to a news release. The company said it plans to use the capital to attract talent, invest in customer acquisition activities and prepare its platform for high usage and traffic.

“For an early stage startup like Sentio, raising money is an arduous task. The team at VentureSouth made us feel welcomed and valued throughout the process,” Sentio CEO Al Richichi said in the release. “We are more motivated than ever to return to our investors many times their investment while exceeding expectations across all lines of business. Our vision to reinvent the hiring process would not be possible without VentureSouth and we are looking forward to a great relationship.”

Entrepreneurs and investors interested in learning more about VentureSouth and the investment process can register for the upcoming VentureSouth Summit, scheduled for Dec. 5-6 in Greenville. This year, through a partnership with Venture Carolina, the S.C. Department of Commerce and SCRA, the firm has expanded the educational programming at the summit.
