Digital employee experience platform Cleary has raised $4.5 million in a seed funding round led by Moonshots Capital. This latest funding comes after Cleary's previous pre-seed funding of $3 million.
Cleary, which currently provides its digital employee experience platform to several companies such as Flexport, DoorDash, Cadre, and Shippo, intends to expand its reach to meet the growing demand for improved employee experiences in the modern workplace.
"With over one billion knowledge workers worldwide and a rapidly-expanding need for cohesive employee experience amongst hybrid workforces, we're thrilled to announce this fundraise as a step towards bringing these capabilities to more companies who view their people as their greatest asset," says Thomas Kunjappu, CEO and Co-founder, Cleary.
The company simplifies the employee experience through its integrated features for Internal Communications, Culture, and Productivity. According to Andrew Weiss, Director of Internal Communications at Dandy, Cleary is a comprehensive solution that covers all aspects of the employee journey and has helped the company operate smoothly as a remote team.
"The tailwinds of the COVID pandemic continue to shift workplace expectations among knowledge workers, and companies that provide essential tools for remote work will thrive in the years to come. In addition to a superior product, Cleary has extraordinary leadership from founders with deep domain expertise, and that's what ultimately leads to success and why we are so excited to partner with Thomas and Ryan," says Kelly Perdew, General Partner at Moonshots Capital.
Cleary offers a range of capabilities such as company news and updates, organizational charts, team management, an internal wiki, a search function, events, public recognition, and more. The company also provides tailored employee journeys for onboarding, and department changes, among others, thus saving time and promoting a unified experience for employees.
The co-founders of Cleary, Thomas Kunjappu and Ryan O'Donnell, previously led the creation of internal people tools at Twitter. Having seen the impact of these tools on the digital employee experience, they founded Cleary to offer a similar solution to companies of all sizes. With the new round of funding, Cleary plans to revolutionize its innovative approach to employee engagement technology.
