SCIENCE-BACKED RESILIENCE FOR ORGANISATIONS
Driven is an AI chatbot scientifically proven to build resilience. Already used by global and large scale organisations such as 3M, Unilever, IAG and Suncorp, Driven helps people stay on top of life through building resilience as a key preventative factor against mental illness.
For employers, Driven helps employees cope with some of the most important mental health issues of the modern age including stress, anxiety, and depression. Coming in the form of a fun and interactive chatbot that is available 24/7 and provides scientific resilience measurement alongside personalised daily 5-minute resilience building activities, the platform has led to a 25% increase in users’ resilience and 83% in job satisfaction.
The platform was developed by a trio in Australia; Jurie Rossouw, Luca Busin, and Susan Whitmore in 2017. The idea originated from Jurie experiencing first-hand the difficulties of seeking help for his mental health struggles from a young age, and his expertise of working as a Resilience Manager at companies including Commonwealth Bank and PwC. Since its initial launch, Driven has grown rapidly with hundreds of clients and over 10,000 users worldwide.
Driven is also bringing mental wellness to a wider audience through partnerships on a global scale with FirstWatch. Covering over 130 million Americans, clients of FirstWatch include 9-1-1 dispatch centers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and police, among others.
Pangaea Impact Investments is excited to invest in Driven alongside strategic investors, FirstWatch, and Giant Leap Fund, Australia's leading impact fund.
