Employee engagement platform Hermis has announced that they have raised $1.75 million in seed funding. The funding round was led by Array Ventures and included True Blue Partners and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. via the Zoom Apps Fund. The platform was launched in direct response to the challenges faced by companies to keep the remote employees connected during the pandemic and is focussing more on reimagining employee engagement for remote teams by making virtual meetings productive and fun.
“Future of work is evolving and so is the definition of team building and collaboration. Hermis has an innovative approach to enabling that future and Array Ventures is excited to be part of it.”, said Shruti Gandhi, Founding Engineer at Array VC.
Founded by Silicon Valley veterans, Madhu Mathihalli and Mohan Gummalam, Hermis provides a purpose-built virtual platform with deeply integrated activities and a library of diverse content allowing distributed teams to participate simultaneously in smaller groups to increase engagement and outcomes.
“We are thrilled to have ‘Funtivity by Hermis’ be an early investment from our Zoom Apps Fund as they help enable distributed teams to stay engaged with each other.”, said Colin Born, Head of Zoom Ventures.
Hermis is committed to helping organizations bridge the culture gap for hybrid and remote-first workforce.
“Hybrid work is here to stay and business leaders are looking for solutions to keep employees connected. Hermis is one of the best ways that I know of today to do that”, said Sunil Grover, Managing Partner at True Blue Partners.
