Project Description

LESOYA Logo
LESOYA LLC Logo

LESOYA®️, LLC's mission is to transform Talent Acquisition/Recruiting by prioritizing the Candidate experience and promoting Social Responsibility. 

60% of job-seekers stopped applying because the process was too long. Cost-per-Hire has increased to an average of $4,200 and 30M+ people filed an unemployment claim. COVID has disrupted our workforce and Women are the most impacted with the highest unemployment rates. 

Pre-COVID, the average job opening received 250 resumes. With the increase of skilled talent and highly competitive jobs, Recruiters are overwhelmed. We estimate the average resume submission has increased to 10x pre-covid numbers.  

We've identified focusing on the candidate experience and aligning with social causes is an untapped area of HR with great potential to transform challenges within Recruiting. We’ve seen the greatest opportunity with CSR orientated businesses looking to prioritize their diversity/CSR goals throughout their hiring process. Specifically, we're focused on adding value to HR professionals at nonprofits, mid-size, and small enterprises.

LESOYA®️ is a social impact startup using innovative technology to solve social problems. CandShout™️ App aims to transform Talent Acquisition/Recruiting by prioritizing the Candidate experience and promoting Social Responsibility. CandShout is Talent Solutions for A Social Good. We amplify the voices and experiences of job seekers. We also provide a Net Promoter Score(NPS) to companies based on the strategic feedback of job applicants. We're enabling mid-size and enterprise companies (SMEs) with a focus on Corporate Social Responsibility to optimize their pre-hire process.  

  • We are seeking funding for CandShout™️ because we bootstrapped our MVP launch and have not yet generated revenue. We are focusing on marketing/awareness, Go-to-Market strategy, and our Customer Acquisition so that we can start generating revenue. We have been unsuccessful in securing funds from traditional banks and have not yet received any grant funding. We used our personal finances to go as far as we can during the pandemic, but we are growing slowly and need help scaling our platform and services. 

  • We will use funds for marketing and promotion, hiring freelancers to support and grow our podcast, hiring to support backend infrastructure of CandShout™️ platform, customer acquisition, operating expenses, paying legal and insurance fees, and scaling our product to address the pre-hire Recruiting needs of nonprofits, mid-size, and Enterprise companies.

  • Our team consists of myself Latoya Leslie (Founder & CEO), Cofounder Michael Fouad, and our Developer, Paxton Burch. Mike has 13 years experience in Consumer Data Analytics & Revenue Generation; MBA in Marketing & Finance. Even with an MBA(pre-covid), he has experienced similar challenges with the job application process. Paxton Burch is a freelancer we found via Angel.co.  

Thank you so much for your support! Thank you for believing in my vision to use technology to better our communities and advance humanity. We believe the Talent of today and future want to work for companies that support social causes. Your support will help social conscious Top-Talent get hired at Companies they love. 

Founder, Latoya Leslie
