Maria Wlosinska, Co-Founder and CEO of Unlock explains: ““We’re in the midst of a culture shift. The companies we work with realise that in order to stay ahead in the talent war, they have to put a strong culture at the core, but that’s not always easy to do in practice. At Unlock, we know that with the right tools and content, gathering as a team online can be easy, engaging and really fun. By providing the cultural infrastructure for companies, they don’t have to spend hours researching and managing how to drive culture in their teams. We make sure there is enough content variability within our platform and the experiences on Unlock are curated to feel refreshing and inspiring for teams to come back regularly.”
Unlock is on a mission to help companies to build that culture and sense of belonging. It gives workplaces an online venue packed with curated interactive experiences to end the struggle to build remote team cohesion. It has over 300 purpose-built bite-size conversation starters and games, and over 50 curated experiences from virtual activity creators
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach.
