Oxford University graduate Husayn Kassai has taken the idea for a web-based employment checking system from inception to incorporation in three months with the help of the Isis Software Incubator (ISI).
The ISI, part of Isis Innovation, the technology transfer office of Oxford University, is intended to support early-stage software ventures from university staff and students to develop products or services.
Kassai’s start-up, VerifyRecruit, reportedly provides fast, thorough automated verification checks for employers and is designed to address the needs of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
VerifyRecruit’s rapid development began with an application for one of the four slots available in the eight-week intensive summer incubator programme. The programme consisted of commercial mentoring, intellectual property advice, assistance in identifying potential customers, enquiry handling and advice on formation of a limited company.
