A thank you from Impraise CEO, Bas Kohnke

Dear clients, users, investors, partners, followers, and, especially, Impraisers,

We are proud to announce Impraise has raised $10.6 million in Series A funding. The investment round is led by our new friends at Keen Venture Partners and longtime partner henQ Capital Partners.

When we started Impraise in 2014, our goal was simple – make performance reviews meaningful. Since then, we’ve been fortunate enough to partner with over 200 market leading companies worldwide. Their challenges and aspirations have defined our product roadmap, evolved our service offerings, and shaped our growth trajectory. For their continued partnership, we are profoundly appreciative.

Now, more than ever, it’s clear the opportunity that lies ahead goes beyond just performance reviews and will move towards a flexible people driven platform. This funding will help us take a more comprehensive approach to performance management, professional development, and engagement, further securing our position as The People Enablement Platform.

I want to thank our dedicated team for their relentless effort in ensuring our customers have the best-in-class technology and support to reach their goals. 

I’m looking forward to the journey ahead — the future is ours!
