We believe that we can work better.
Our CEO, Toby, was working one afternoon when he got a call from a friend who was reeling from a fight with her boss—a culmination of months of tension. He tried to help, then quickly realized he knew the best person for the job: his former Gilt Groupe colleague Sarah, who was always helping people deal with stressful issues at work.
After chatting with Sarah, Toby’s friend went forward to resolve her issue (and not quit, as she had threatened). The experience struck a chord and got Toby thinking more and more about workplace conflict. Having spent years building a platform for on-demand urgent care, he couldn’t help thinking employees would benefit from a similar approach in moments of need at work, something akin to ‘HR urgent care’ that would provide a much-needed first step, a safe place outside the walls of work.
Today, that first step is Bravely. We’re building a resource to help people tackle their issues proactively and constructively, transforming the workplace into a better, healthier place for everyone.
We’re honored to work with leading NYC seed investors, plus some current and former founders.
