HearMe, a Polish company offering psychological support as an employee benefit, is closing the second investment round. The Polish start-up obtained funding from investors at the level of € 303,000. Among the supporters, Andreas Mihalovits – the creator of the German eBay.
At the beginning of June, HearMe again obtained an investment from the Spanish fund VC Think Bigger Capital, and financing from two angel-investors from Germany and Spain. It was the second investment round for the startup.
“We started operating a few months before the pandemic. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we noted a huge interest of Polish employers in our offer. In the fall of 2021, we are already well-established on the Polish market.” – says Kasia Gryzło, CEO – Currently, HearMe is used as a benefit in 45 companies. At the beginning, representatives of the tech and marketing industry decided to engage therapists in supporting employees in Poland, but now we have a very diverse portfolio from logistics companies to universities.
HearMe is created by Kasia Gryzło (CEO and CMO), Michał Piciel (COO and Head of Sales) and Paweł Pier Ringsek (CTO). The team met in the Demium incubation program. There the idea was developed and the MVP phase was conducted.
