"By integrating Gritly's candidate experience capabilities, we are poised to deliver an unmatched solution for healthcare recruitment," said Joe Thurman, CEO of IIA Healthcare. "This acquisition is a significant milestone in our journey, continuing our momentum in the healthcare industry, and we are excited about the immense value it will bring to our clients.

"Together, we're set to redefine the hiring landscape, ensuring a future where every hire is not just a fit, but a step towards greater success and more informed hiring decisions. The journey ahead is bright, and we're excited to lead the charge in pioneering a transformative approach in the global landscape of talent acquisition, training, and organizational excellence."

This acquisition comes amid IIA Healthcare also announcing it is raising a $2M Seed II Round led by their current lead investor, DEMI Fund.

The growing investment and success is poised to fuel the company's growth, enabling it to further expand its AI-capabilities and automation enhancements to continuously improve outcomes for hiring organizations and candidates alike.

"These companies are solving some of the biggest problems in the country right now," says Danielle Shoots, Founding Partner & Managing Director of DEMI Fund. "The founding teams of these companies are brilliant, creative, and resilient beyond comprehension. I am so proud of them coming together in an offering that both reaffirms and increases their value in the market. We don't fix systems by doing the same thing over and over again. We must be courageous enough to imagine a different way and then execute on it even when nobody believes in us. This is the perfect example."
