Winningtemp adds Shirin Dehghan to its Board as Chairperson along with raising €15m Series B funding co-led by Frog Capital and Bonnier Ventures

– SWEDEN, Gothenburg –  Winningtemp, the Swedish employee engagement startup, today announced a €15.1M Series B funding round co-led by Frog Capital and Bonnier Ventures.

Frog Capital Operating Partner, Shirin Dehghan will sit on the board as Chairperson.

“Keeping your high-quality talent motivated and effective is now acknowledged as mission critical,” added Shirin Dehghan, Frog Capital Operating Partner. “Winningtemp has an awesome product at exactly the right time. I am honoured to have been asked to Chair the board in the interim to help navigate the company’s ambitious global expansion.”

Having experienced a 300% increase in platform usage during the first three weeks of lockdown, and consistent growth over summer, Winningtemp’s AI and science-based employee engagement platform has become a mainstay for companies attempting to ensure morale is maintained during a time of remote working.

Based on more than 600 international scientific studies, the platform helps senior team members visualize employees’ behavior and development in real-time: providing predictions and recommendations alongside real-time insights and help.

Winningtemp is relied upon by 600 companies globally. The startup now has over 100,000 daily users in over 20 countries and is targeting international expansion, specifically to the United States.

In order to maintain this international growth and to capitalize upon the fact that employee morale and efficacy has moved from the preserve of HR departments to being a top priority for CEOs and C-suite executives, this latest funding round was brought forward.

“We are experiencing unprecedented demand,” said CEO and co-founder, Pierre Lindmark.“We have a strong competitive edge given our AI and science-based approach. Employee engagement is only going to grow in importance, with companies coming out on top over competitors because of their approach to culture and by building a team of people who feel passionate about who they work for. Frog Capital and Bonnier Ventures have really understood this and will be a great support with our next phase of expansion.”

Victor Bodin, Investment Director at Bonnier Ventures said: “The Winningtemp team has really impressed us. They have built a leading product offering which we think is right on target for the modern company. At the same time, they’ve managed to grow their business at high rates and in a capital-efficient way. We are pleased to partner with the team in helping them to scale up their business internationally from a strong Nordic base.”
