87%, a London, UK-based workplace wellbeing platform provider, raised £1.6M in seed funding. The round was led by Aviva Foundation.

87% uses sophisticated, clinically-validated measurements to give individuals the means to understand, address and strengthen their mental health. Customised tools and content, daily exercises and reflections and nudge theory techniques promote healthy habits that build mental fitness as a part of everyday life. Personalised coaching in a safe environment gives the broader workforce the means to develop enduring wellbeing techniques, while those exhibiting areas for focus are automatically signposted to support services.

Richard Glynn, Founder and Chairman of 87%, comments, “At 87%, we see building mental fitness foundations as a critical part of everyday life. Without strong foundations, we all struggle to fulfil our potential or recover quickly when the winds of change shift against us. With data sitting at the heart of our proposition, we can make this tangible for users and businesses. Whether it’s the user benefitting from better focus and performance, and therefore greater fulfilment in life, or businesses getting more from staff through improved productivity and efficiency, our measurements drive the insights needed to take appropriate action.”

The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand its business reach into the corporate sector.
