Thanks to Otta, Welcome to the Jungle is setting out to conquer the American market, an objective already announced at the beginning of last year when closing its 50 million euro Series C round. to establish and develop in this strategic market. And for good reason, 70% of applications on Otta already come from the United States. Enough to give yourself the means to make your American dream come true.
