We’re beyond excited to announce that Juno has now raised $4 million in funding!
This funding round has been led by Hoxton Ventures, the backers of Darktrace, Babylon Health and Deliveroo.
Notable entrepreneurs from Learnerbly (Rajeeb Dey MBE), Captify (Adam Ludwin), Jungle Creations (Jamie Boulding), SuperAwesome (Joshua Wohle) and Heights (Dan Murray-Serter) also participated.
Welcoming our own clients as investors (OysterHR, Paddle and Supernode Global) is an especially humbling moment for us.
Since the pandemic, employers have been flocking to Juno to look after their employees whilst the war for talent and Great Resignation rumbles on and we have seen our user base grow 10x over the course of the pandemic.
Our approach and mission of improving the lives of working people by reinventing the way people access wellbeing support has seen Juno sign more than 160 clients with employees using the platform in over 40 countries. Our concept is simple - we’re providing benefits that make a real difference.
Instead of the mandatory office lunch, football table or pub trip, employees can opt for anything and everything - ranging from childcare vouchers, access to a house cleaner, learning and development, food boxes, therapy, massages, and more. We are taking on outdated workplace wellbeing practices – replacing blanket benefits like private healthcare and cycle-to-work schemes or forced initiatives such as beer fridges and pizza evenings with personalised benefits that suit the specific needs of each individual employee.
We’re especially proud to serve global clients with a large variety of workplaces from remote to office-based, such as Paddle, OysterHR, Bolt, Stuart, Teads, Manifest and Koto Studio.
Currently, at the time of writing, the total number of providers on the platform is 283, with 47 added this year alone, making Juno the largest wellbeing marketplace of its kind. We can’t wait to take Juno to the next level and continue expanding.
Ally Fekaiki, CEO of Juno said: “I’m immensely proud of our team and our community of members around the world. We have created a new path for employers that want to look after their teams. By giving employees the ultimate power and flexibility to make their own wellbeing choices, we are ensuring that everybody is looked after – no matter where or who they are. With this funding round, we are going to double-down on providing value and care to our members and clients around the world.”
Charles Seely, partner at Hoxton Ventures, said: “We’re excited to back Ally and the Juno team. We believe that the future of work is a giant category within which transformative businesses will be built.”
Adam Ludwin, co-founder of Captify, said “Many companies are trying but failing to understand, comprehend and support their employees. Juno’s offering helps solve this by getting rid of the current one-size-fits-all approach and replacing it with benefits that allow companies to support everyone uniquely. It gives them access to the world’s largest online wellbeing marketplace and empowers employees to access wellbeing solutions that fit their unique personality and lifestyle. It is an incredibly exciting time for Juno and I’m proud to be part of the journey.”
Caroline Matthews, MD of Koto Studio, whose team uses Juno said: “It is paramount for businesses to invest in and take care of their employees. Juno helps Koto do just this. Great friendly service that makes everyone feel important.”
Our growth would not be possible without the support of those behind us. So, we would like to take a moment to say a massive thanks and show gratitude to everyone that has supported us so far and continues to support Juno today - our members, our partners, our team, and our investors.
