Helsinki-based HappySignals, an Employee Experience Management Platform provider, has announced the successful closure of a €4.7M series A funding round led by Nauta Capital with Vendep Capital also in participation. HappySignals will further its mission of helping enterprise IT leaders identify what needs to change so they can build happy, productive cultures that drive digital transformation by scaling operations in Europe and the US.

“We believe happiness and productivity are the keys to transforming business IT culture for the better.

We do this by giving enterprise IT leaders the employee experience data they need to make outcome-focused IT decisions that drive digital transformation.

In Nauta Capital, we’ve found the perfect partner to help us scale operations. Their strong track record of supporting B2B disruptors represents a wealth of experience that will ensure we make the right moves going forward. We are also extremely thankful for the continued support of Vendep Capital, who has been with us almost two years now.

With enterprise IT forming the connective tissue that ensures companies operate efficiently – Experience Level Agreements (XLAs) have become an emerging trend for IT leaders who want to understand the true value their services deliver for employees and organizations.

“We were impressed by Sami and the team at HappySignals. Their experience in IT service design, software, and building companies speaks for itself, but furthermore, the company has proven to be very resilient as it has grown during an extended period of a global lockdown.

What they’ve done so far with a very small team and limited funding is extremely impressive, and we are excited to see what they accomplish with the additional investment”

said Carles Ferrer, a London-based General Partner at Nauta Capital.

“We made our original investment in HappySignals because we strongly believed in the team and their mission to build exceptional enterprise service experiences that make a real difference. We’re proud to continue our support in this latest funding round”

says Sakari Pihlava, General Partner at Vendep Capital

To date, HappySignals has raised €6.2M in total funding. HappySignals has measured the happiness and productivity of over two million employees in enterprises and businesses, such as Campari Group, Equinor, and Cargotec, across 130 countries. Customers of HappySignals have seen a 26% reduction in time lost to IT-related issues.
