A sneak-peak into the opportunity

“HR tech the last two years or so has gotten pretty hot.” The onset of 2021 and the continuity of the remote hybrid workspace led to 'the great resignation' where millions of people across the globe reigned, leaving managers anxious to hold on to their employees. Here an opportunity arose to combine HR (a space that needed modernization) and technology to turn 'the great resignation' into 'the great retention', a time when leaders focus on leveraging technology like mesh that increases visibility, performance and engagement to retain top talent.

Why you should join Mesh

At Mesh, we reimagined boring old corporate softwares for managing goals and sharing feedback into a simple social network. This increases visibility of progress and makes performance management an on-going habit rather than a forced process. Mesh replaces several different management tools and increases employee engagement, especially in distributed teams. Here's a short demo video and also an overview note about why Mesh over existing performance management tools. Backed by Y Combinator, Liquid2Ventures and other VCs, Mesh customers have reported ~25% increase in engagement and ~20% increase in goal achievement.
