Research | Intelligent Talent

Intelligent Talent is a $9 billion global market growing 18%, comprised of software, content and analytics that leverage data to help companies build teams with the right individuals in the right roles. These solutions allow for improved decision making across the talent continuum – beginning with candidate recruitment and continuing through onboarding, ongoing development and retention.


The Intelligent Talent market is poised for continued growth as HR professionals (a traditionally tech-resistant group) embrace data-driven talent strategies to combat a tight labor market and the changing career preferences of younger generations. These tools enable companies to form a more holistic view of employees and potential hires while also providing a frictionless and engaging user experience.



Catalyst has a history of backing successful Intelligent Talent companies, including investments in Ascentis, Envoy, Galvanize, Jobvite and Reputation Institute. We believe this market will continue to experience tailwinds for years to come and are eager to partner with more of these businesses seeking growth equity capital.
