Tech startup Anvl scores $2 million seed fund to predict and prevent injuries and deaths with its workforce-first safety software
Anvl, a workforce-first safety software startup company, has raised $2 million seed funding round to grow its platform and add hires in sales, services, engineering and marketing. The funding round included participation from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, High Alpha Capital and a number of experienced tech leaders and angel investors, including Steve Cage, who is joining the Anvl board.
Founded in 2018 by Robin Fleming, Anvl is a next-generation safety solution for the workforce launched out of the High Alpha Venture Studio. Anvl’s workforce-first technology captures leading indicators and leverages emerging technologies like mobile, AR, wearables and IoT devices to prevent failures and deliver a targeted safety experience. Anvl helps companies ensure their employees make it home at the end of the day. We provide workers with actionable safety insights and interventions to raise awareness of risks, reducing and preventing injuries.
Anvl predicts and prevents workplace injuries and deaths for the deskless worker. Anvl replaces outdated paper processes and checklists with smart digital workflows, rich data analysis and real-time communication. Anvl’s workflow engine evaluates real-time data and helps companies manage risk at the point where work occurs. Real-time safety supervision drives behavioral change and builds a safety culture that delivers results.
Anvl is expanding its safety software platform as it continues to drive digital transformation and modernize the traditional EHS and compliance safety software industry. “I am passionate about building and backing companies like Anvl that are disruptive, create jobs and make a big impact on business outcomes,” said Cage, an innovator and entrepreneur in the quality-control industry who built and sold two successful businesses.
Scott Kraege, the co-founder and former CEO of MOBI Wireless Management which sold to Tangoe in 2018, is also joining the Anvl board of directors. “The rapid acceleration of mobile technology for frontline workers provides Anvl with a huge opportunity to help companies drive transformational changes with safety culture and behavior,” said Kraege.
“We are thrilled to be investing in Anvl, another great example of an innovative company scaling outside the coastal tech hubs,” said J.D. Vance, managing partner of Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund. “Anvl provides a solution that is changing the game for the way frontline workers are approaching their tasks, and the way management is gathering insights and intervening.”
Anvl delivers corporate safety technology that identifies leading indicators to enable intervention at the point where risk occurs. Since launching, Anvl has identified in real time over 3500 areas of elevated risk and collected more than 1.5 million data points. The photos, text and data collected are aggregated to determine trends and opportunities for safety improvements before an incident occurs. Anvl provides an opportunity for improved safety culture, improved safety metrics and increased operational efficiency.
“We are passionate about helping companies engage and protect frontline workers who face hazardous environments every day,” said Anvl CEO Robin Fleming. “This funding will allow us to make big strides forward as we expand our product offerings and customer reach to positively impact even more lives.”
