Singapore cloud startup EngageRocket raises $640k led by SeedPlus

Singapore-based cloud-based software startup EngageRocket has raised $640,000 in seed funding led by SeedPlus, taking the total funds raised to $1 million. Found. Ventures also participated in this round.

EngageRocket’s previous investors include former JobCentral co-founder Huang Shao-Ning.

According to a press statement, EngageRocket plans to use the proceeds to deepen its data intelligence capabilities and provide a platform for continuous performance management.

EngageRocket’s cloud-based software automates employee feedback and analytics to improve employee performance. Their product also aims to help leaders and organisations improve business performance through real-time data.

The company boasts over 27,000 users across 13 countries in the Asia Pacific, with more than half a million responses in 8 Asian languages since its launch less than 2 years ago. It has also secured partnerships with SP Group, Bank Danamon, Mediacorp, Tokopedia and Shopback.

“I’m most excited about the application of data and technology to solve problems at scale. In Asia, there exist huge gaps in understanding human capital and relevant data to enable people managers and leaders to build better companies,” said Tiang Lim Foo, Operating Partner at SeedPlus.

“As workplace productivity technology shifts from ‘systems of record’ to ‘systems of engagement’, we’re excited to partner with  CheeTung and Dorothy at EngageRocket’ to define the future of work in Asia.”

“We spend more than half our waking lives at work,” Leong, Co-founder and CEO, said. “Asian companies employ 60% of the global labour force today, and will contribute 40% of global GDP by 2030.”
