Identify the right candidates to participate in a multi-week program.
Plum was challenged to identify who would be best suited to participate in a highly sought after program.
Plum accurately identified the small group of participants to be selected and the program was a tremendous success.
The Fierce Founders Bootcamp needed to select a small group of women to participate in their program. These women would have the potential to be entrepreneurs that investors would give a vote of confidence and their money to. They needed a hiring solution to help them easily sort through applicants and choose participants who would be a best fit.
“With an overwhelming number of applications for the Women’s Entrepreneur Bootcamp, it was a very challenging task to narrow down the numbers and select the right people. We were not setup to deal with the capacity of applicants that we received and Plum made that manageable.”
The program application showcased all that each woman had done, but it didn’t give any insight into if they would be a fit for the actual program. Plum assessed all of the program applicants for key traits that would predict success in the program.
“What I didn’t have was the ability to assess them on who they were, it wasn’t just about their startup idea, it was about them.”
The program’s success was dependant on the quality of the participants and that started with a selection process that was comprehensive and data based.
“I wanted to make sure we were getting the best candidates for the type of program we were offering. The candidates needed to be the right fit and I wanted a scientific process to do this.”
In the end, a small group of diversely experienced women were selected and the program was tremendous success.
“What Plum allowed us to do is narrow down the candidates and identify why many would not be right for our program. Without Plum we would have selected some of the wrong candidates, with Plum we were able to find the type of people that investors would invest in”
