Anvl, an Indianapolis, Indiana-based workforce-first safety software company, announced that it raised $2 million in a seed round of funding. This round of funding included participation from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, High Alpha Capital, and several angel investors including Steve Cage — who is joining the Anvl board.

“I am passionate about building and backing companies like Anvl that are disruptive, create jobs and make a big impact on business outcomes,” said Cage — an entrepreneur in the quality-control industry who built and sold two successful businesses.

With this round of funding, Anvl is planning to expand its safety software platform as it continues to drive digital transformation and modernize the traditional EHS and compliance safety software industry.

And Anvl is also planning to use the funds to grow its platform and hire in sales, services, engineering, and marketing.

“We are thrilled to be investing in Anvl, another great example of an innovative company scaling outside the coastal tech hubs,” explained Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund managing partner JD Vance. “Anvl provides a solution that is changing the game for the way frontline workers are approaching their tasks, and the way management is gathering insights and intervening.”

MOBI Wireless Management’s (acquired by Tangoe in 2018) former CEO and co-founder Scott Kraege also joined the Anvl board of directors.

“The rapid acceleration of mobile technology for frontline workers provides Anvl with a huge opportunity to help companies drive transformational changes with safety culture and behavior,” added Kraege.

Anvl is delivering corporate safety technology that identifies leading indicators to enable intervention at the point where risk occurs. And since launching, Anvl has identified in real-time over 3,500 areas of elevated risk and collected more than 1.5 million data points.

The photos, text, and data collected are aggregated to determine trends and opportunities for safety improvements before an incident occurs. And Anvl provides an opportunity for improved safety culture, improved safety metrics, and increased operational efficiency.

“We are passionate about helping companies engage and protect frontline workers who face hazardous environments every day,” noted Anvl CEO Robin Fleming. “This funding will allow us to make big strides forward as we expand our product offerings and customer reach to positively impact even more lives.”
