Job sites operator Wanted Lab has invested an undisclosed sum in Weebur, a company offering professional workshops.

Wanted Lab, which is headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, made this investment without any participation, a first for the company, which was established in 2015.

Weebur is a business-to-business website that connects instructors with companies and offers online and in-person professional workshops. It also offers bespoke workshops conducted by professional moderators covering team building, recruitment, on-boarding and stress management.

The company’s most recent previous investment was in SaaS-based schedule management service WhatTime, and it says it will continue to invest in similar businesses as part of its core strategy.

Wanted Lab posted 78.1% year-on-year growth in quarterly sales revenue in 2022. The company also operates recruitment marketplaces Wanted.co.kr and KreditJob.com, and job sites jp.wanted.jobs in Japan and Wanted.jobs in Singapore.

“If there are startups that can create synergy with WantedLab in the future, we plan to actively review investment,” its co-founder and CEO Bokkee Lee said in a statement to media.

Mergers and acquisitions are having a moment in the Korean recruitment market. Networking app operator Drama & Company employs a similar strategy, as evidenced by its recent back-to-back acquisition of rectech services.
