Workplace mental health platform Unmind raises £3m
Workplace mental health platform Unmind has raised £3 million of new funding investment.
The round was led by Felix Capital with co-investment from Michael Whitfield and Chris Bruce, founders of Thomson Online Benefits.
The additional capital will be used by Unmind to improve its mobile-first product, whilst increasing its library of content.
Its vision is a workplace environment where mental health is universally understood, nurtured and celebrated.
Headquartered in London and founded in 2016, Unmind provides clinically-backed tools, training, and assessments that any employee can use to proactively improve their mental health. Its digital platform includes bite-sized exercises for everyday wellbeing, personalised assessments, and customised programmes for improving areas such as stress, focus, and sleep.
All of content is produced by expert clinicians and academics, with the aim of creating healthier, happier, higher-performing organisations.
Unmind can be anonymously accessed by employees at any time, with current global clients including John Lewis & Partners, Made.com, Square Enix, William Hill, Yorkshire Building Society, and Pentland.
“We have had the pleasure of speaking with Antoine Nussenbaum at Felix Capital for the past couple of years,” said Nick Taylor, CEO and co-founder of Unmind.
“From our first conversation, we knew there was an incredible synergy between the Felix and Unmind approaches to using technology to better and progress society’s wellbeing.
“We are very excited to collaborate with the Felix Capital team to empower every individual with expert support to improve their mental health – anywhere, anytime.”
Nussenbaum, partner at Felix Capital, added: “The aspiration for a better life provides lots of opportunities for new digital branded proposition capturing fast changing behaviours.
“With Unmind, we’re partnering with a founding team on an authentic mission to solve mental wellness at the workplace, something that has never really been addressed properly.
“Initial traction with well-established brands such as John Lewis or William Hill are good illustrations of the blue ocean to tackle in front of us, we’re excited to be on board this very special journey.”
