Angel Investors back FormScore with £100k to help the world be more intentional about wellbeing.
FormScore is an app and movement that facilitates social connections for mental wellbeing. They help people build self-awareness by tracking their wellbeing with a score out of ten and connect with trusted colleagues, friends and family to offer peer support when required. Form for Business anonymously aggregates scores to provide a real time measure of organisational and team wellbeing.
FormScore is a simple solution to one of the problems of our time. The world is facing a mental health crisis, yet the stigma of mental ill-health prevents many people from talking about their challenges. Furthermore, people do not generally have the self-awareness necessary to proactively manage their wellbeing. Employers need better ways to find out how employees are doing in respect of their wellbeing as we move to remote and hybrid working models.
FormScore was Founded by one of the world’s leading mental health campaigners, Rob Stephenson, who experiences bipolar disorder personally. The FormScore methodology evolved out of a simple tool given to Stephenson by a therapist many years ago. FormScore partnered with highly regarded technology business, Jigsaw XYZ, to develop the technology to underpin the movement of openness and connection about mental wellbeing.
This modest pre-seed investment from mission driven angel investors, including role models from the InsideOut LeaderBoard (also founded by Stephenson) will help fuel the growth of Formsters (users of Form) and onboard further pilot partners and enterprise customers alongside developing the features of the app and employer dashboard.
“I am delighted to welcome a number of angel investors, passionate about the mental health agenda, to the FormScore mission. The world needs to become more intentional about wellbeing and it all starts with helping people answer the question ‘How are you today?’ honestly and authentically where their mental wellbeing is concerned. We have lots to do to complete our mission but now is the time to do it. I am grateful for the support of our Angels”
