The Gild Platform uses data science, consumer-friendly technologies, and predictive analytics to bring intelligence to hiring. The platform supports every step of the hiring process—from sourcing prospects and nurturing relationships to scheduling final interviews—to liberate recruiters and hiring teams by automating routine tasks so they can focus on the more valuable strategic aspects of talent acquisition.

"The Gild Platform employs the most cutting-edge technology available to solve the problems that traditionally made hiring slow, cumbersome, and costly," said Sheeroy Desai, CEO of Gild. "It allows that work to become less about time-consuming manual tasks like reviewing individual resumes and more about high-level relationship-building and strategic decision-making. We see the TiE50 award as both recognition of our approach to hiring and continuing evidence that people are starting to understand the value a smart, effective talent acquisition process contributes to a company's success."

"The TiE50 Awards Program works with thousands of companies to identify the most useful and innovative products available," said Venktesh Shukla, president of TiE, Silicon Valley.

About the TiE50 Awards

Founded in Silicon Valley in 1992, The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) is dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship globally. The TiE50 Awards Program recognizes the world's most enterprising technology startups. To determine the winners, a panel of segment experts with direct domain expertise first screens the nominees—privately held companies that are less than 5 years old. Companies are evaluated and scored on three parameters: business model, intellectual property (IP) and leadership team. The select list is then reviewed in more detail by an expert panel of serial entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, CEOs and well-rounded technology experts to determine finalists and winners. The final list of 2015 TiE50 Top Startups is chosen based on their mix of attributes that demonstrate the highest probability of success.
