The announcement of Clustree as part of the Gartner Cool Vendor list comes just a few months after the closing of Clustree’s €2.5M fundraising round led by Alven Capital and business angels including Xavier Niel and Nicolas Brusson. It also follows Clustree’s being voted the “European HR Start-up of the Year” during the HR Tech World Congress last October.
