Blink, the creator of an app for frontline workers that provides content and collaboration tools has raised €17M in a Series A round led by Next47. Partech and TechStars also supported the round, which values the startup at €86 million.
Founder and CEO, Sean Nolan stated that: “As labour shortages hit industries with historically high staff turnover, such as healthcare, it’s clear that wages aren’t the only factor driving employees away. Using Blink has become a competitive advantage in the battle for talent, with organizations using the app to attract and retain their frontline workforce.”
The company offers an all-in-one employee app for frontline workers, providing them with a ‘digital front door’ on their phone. With Blink, frontline leaders can align their teams, unify their systems, and drive their businesses forward while gaining a granular, data-driven view of employee engagement, sentiment and turnover across their workforce.
The capital will go toward product development and expansion into North America.
