Blind Raises $37M for Anonymous Workplace Communities

Blind announced today a $37 million Series C funding round led by Mainstreet Investment — with participation from Cisco Investments and Pavilion Capital. Returning Investors include Storm Ventures and DCM Ventures.

Blind allows pseudonymous employees to speak to each other about what is happening at work, enabling them to swap notes on everything from policies, layoffs, and promotions.

 “People are just more honest on our platform versus these company-sponsored channels,” Kyum Kim, Blind’s co-founder and general manager said. “We’re probably the only platform where people are coming voluntarily, have visibility into their intentions, how they feel about their company’s policies.” Blind wants to protect the identities of its users, while also offering aggregate insights to companies. Blind is now creating tools around pulse surveys to give HR leaders better insight on employee sentiment.
