Whispr secures early funding for app to support deskless workers



ImpactAlpha, March 18 – Workplace startups are mostly geared towards desk workers – think think Zoom, Slack or Trello. Copenhagen-based Whispr wants to change that with voice-guided tools for workers in deskless jobs, like transport, hospitality, healthcare, and construction.

Whispr’s app allows workers to ask for information or guidance hands-free. “We are returning to the original and most natural ‘user interface’, which is voice,” said founder Hugh O’Flanagan. Whispr says it has drawn early interest from aviation, facilities management and hospitality businesses and will soon launch a pilot project.

The company, which launched last year, has raised €668,000 ($756,000) in pre-seed funding from Seedcamp, PreSeed Ventures, Futuristic VC, and audio equipment company Bose’s venture arm, Bose Ventures.
