Bengaluru-based Indian community workplace discussion app Hush has raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding led by early-stage venture capital firm Accel Partners. Other investors that participated in the round include Sanjay Nadkarni, Country Manager of Houzz India and ex-founder of BabyOye, along with other angel investors.

The funds raised will be used for building the team, expanding outreach to other national and international markets, along with enhancing efficiency through innovative technology.

Hush was founded by Ashutosh Dabral and Umesh Joshi in October 2017. The app aims to help make the workplaces better by providing a platform for employees to share their honest opinions anonymously. The app is looking to provide a comprehensive platform for employee engagement and career feedback, to also help the employees in their career growth.

Ashutosh Dabral, Co-Founder of Hush commented, “It is very important for a company to hear their employees’ real and true opinions. With the escalating gap between available job opportunities and scarcity of talent, employee engagement and retention is important for every employer. We are focused on creating a restricted community for each workplace by encouraging employees to voice their opinions on various discussions, starting polls on relevant topics and exchanging views candidly without the fear of retribution (which is the case with traditional forms of feedback).”

By providing a platform to discuss the good, bad, and the ugly of an organization, the employees can help drive a positive change in the work culture, while maintaining their privacy. The app is available on both the Android and iOS devices, and it has over 25,000 downloads so far.
