Today’s news follows from the startup’s $ 3.1 million Seed round in July 2020. Williams said it’s been a “busy year” for the company.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid shift to remote work have “exposed many vulnerabilities” in the way companies communicate, and some of their broader processes, Williams continued.

David Ulevitch, a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, explained why the firm supported the startup:
“Pyn is an internal communication tool that leaders can deploy to executives and team operations people for meaningful communication with a target group of employees, at the right time. No more internal internal email that employees grow to ignore.Personalized employee communication that can make a huge impact on productivity, prosperity, and longevity.
“However, Pyn is more of a communications power tool that optimally disseminates information. It also treats employee communication channels as the rails on which management skills are organized in an organization. It delivers Pyn of a library of management playbooks.For example, once an employee is assigned as a new manager in the Human Resource Information System (HRIS), Pyn can initiate onboarding processes for the new manager instead of waiting. for some version of the quarterly new manager training. “
