The SaaS startup from Finland — Happeo recently announced that it has raised $8M funding from leading international investors including DN Capital (UK/Silicon Valley), Maki.vc (Helsinki), and Vendep Capital (Helsinki).

The additional capital will be used by Happeo to expand upon its rich suite of integrations, making it possible to launch Linkedin, Google Chat, and Slack this quarter. The funding will also be used to expand the global presence of the company, following the opening of its Amsterdam office earlier this year.

Happeo is an all-in-one digital workplace platform that empowers internal communicators to connect with employees in entirely new ways. The platform brings together intranet, collaboration, and social networking into one unified solution. Large enterprises and organisations, such as Randstad Sourceright and Groupe Chantelle, use Happeo to reach, engage, and listen to more than 220,000 employees worldwide to create a seamless employee experience.

The Happeo SaaS platform provides software solutions to use on daily-basis into one unified platform, allowing employees not only to connect and collaborate in new ways but also to work more efficiently.

“By bringing together enterprise CMS, social intranet and collaboration in a single platform, Happeo has created a solution that will be critical to the digital workplace of the future. We are delighted to join Maki.vc and Vendep in Happeo’s first institutional funding round,” says Steve Schlenker from DN Capital.

Since officially launching its platform in 2017, Happeo (formerly Universe) has been nominated as one of the most promising startups by the European Union, and today already more than 220,000 employees are working with the Happeo digital workplace.

“Traditional employee intranets are dead, because they host static and often outdated information in isolation, offering no value to the employee,” says Perttu Ojansuu, Co-Founder, and CEO of Happeo. “Happeo is providing organizations with a totally integrated digital workplace, serving as a central hub for employees to access company resources, collaborate, and connect with each other. This massively improves employee experience and drives our clients’ growth.”

By integrating enterprise collaboration tools, Happeo brings together essential tools including calendar, files, conferencing, and projects, even CRM and HR-systems – in one digital workplace. The platform is enriched with knowledge sharing and social networking features directly driving engagement, productivity, and an enjoyable employee experience.
