Prejudice-free recruitment wins Södertörn Social Cup

This year’s winner of the Södertörn Social Cup startup competition was recruitment service Rektra, which uses AI to make recruitment fairer and more efficient.

“Our service is both time- and cost-efficient, for job seekers and recruiters. We’ve focused heavily on improving job matches based on the job seekers’ goals,” says Sanna Bergling, CEO of Rektra, which she founded with her husband Philip.

Sanna worked in conventional recruitment herself and knows that the selection phase itself takes a considerable amount of time, up to 20 hours per candidate. Rektra does this instead, removing unnecessary delays, with the help of AI.
“We match candidates’ skill sets with specific jobs, and take into account what the candidate wants to do, what are they looking to do next in their career. Right now, we’re focusing on jobseekers at the beginning of their careers.”

Every candidate’s name, profile picture, gender, and age are anonymized in the recruitment process to make the process fairer and more equitable.
“Our method guarantees that recruitments can be free from prejudice and can contribute to a more equal and socially sustainable society,” says Sanna.

The final of the Södertörn Social Cup was between 10 entries, with prizes being awarded for first and second place.
“Winning the Södertörn Social Cup means a lot. It’s a validation of our ideas and generates greater interest. We had a great response which makes it easier to develop the idea and the business,” she says.
The event is arranged by Drivhuset Stockholm, Venture Cup, and Flemingsberg Science.

You can still catch the final here.

“Soon we can meet again IRL”

Since the Covid outbreak, our work has been characterised by video meetings, especially in our various focus groups. Success has exceeded expectations, thanks to the fact that the approximately 70 people who are involved in the groups had time to get to know one other and the issues even before the pandemic. But we are really looking forward to being able to meet again IRL, and hopefully soon – it is so much more enjoyable!

XNK Therapeutics lays the groundwork for GMP facility in Flemingsberg

"Flemingsberg is the place in the world you want to be if you work with NK cells. There is a strong research facility here with a world-leading research group and proximity to a clinic that really knows NK cells. We recently started the construction of a new GMP facility with an associated research laboratory of 350 square meters for our NK cell therapy. The new facility is being built at Novum in Flemingsberg and, once the facility is completed in 2022, it will give us complete control over the entire development chain."
