Dynamic Workforce Management vendor takes both audience and dragons’ prizes at Staffing Industry Analysts’ Collaboration in the Gig Economy Dragons’ Den competition
London, UK–Sirenum, the leading provider of dynamic workforce management technology to the temporary staffing industry, is proud to announce that it was the audience and dragon favorite at the Dragons’ Den competition during SIA’s Collaboration in the Gig Economy, held in London in late April. The conference, the first such event from SIA in Europe after multiple successful years in the US, brought together hundreds of executives from across the gig economy supply and value chains: workforce solutions enterprise buyers, staffing firms, RPOs, VMSs, MSPs, suppliers to staffing, gig economy, and human cloud companies.
“The SIA has long been an organisation we have admired,” said Sirenum founder and CEO Benjamin Rubin. “That we were able to win the Dragons’ Den in the first SIA conference we’ve ever attended is truly thrilling, but it’s also a great testament to the effort our team has put in to get here.”
The Dragons’ Den competition, the capstone session of the conference, featured industry leaders Viktor Calabro, CEO and Founder, Coople; Kevin Green, CEO, What’s Next Consultancy; Kelly Griffith, Head of AGX UK&I, The Adecco Group; and Bryan Peña, SVP, Contingent Workforce Strategies, CCWP, Staffing Industry Analysts playing the roles of the dragons first made famous on the Japanese TV show entitled, “Money Tigers” and later in the US as “Shark Tank” and in the UK as “Dragons’ Den.”
Sirenum’s presentation given by company co-founder Joshua Pines, director of marketing and corporate development. Competition was fierce from the three finalists: e-staffing agency Jobandtalent, consulting project management tool Deployed, and cryptocurrency provider GigEcoin. After each competitor finished a five minute presentation followed by five minutes of Q&A, votes were solicited from both the audience and dragons based on the innovative nature of the business idea, its market potential, and the quality of presentation, and Sirenum was the top choice for both groups.
“We were thrilled to be mentioned alongside industry leaders,” said Pines. “But it really was a blast to get up in front of hundreds of industry leaders and help them understand how Sirenum is changing the paradigm for dynamic workers,”
