Empathy is for everyone. We help people and organizations develop skills for greater understanding, compassion, and insight via AI-powered analytics, correction, and training of empathy. More empathy equals better employee, customer, and business outcomes. Learn more about us and meet the team!

We are a seed-stage, VC- backed start-up.
Our company was founded by repeat entrepreneurs. We are a practical AI company with SaaS profit margins/ Our technology is patent pending. In May 2022, we closed $4M in seed (5.2M to-date) led by Next Frontier Capital with large co-investment from prior investor Illuminate as well as participating from Portland See Fund, Full-Circle, WXR Fund, Graham & Walker, and First Row Partners. Our customers include SaaS business from innovative HR tech to publicly-traded healthcare companies. Check out our company website and learn more about AI empathy from our interviews in GeekWire, WIRED, Dropbox, blog, and more.

The market opportunity is huge. As communication is increasingly mediated through online chat, video calls, and emails, opportunities for misunderstanding abound. Poorly-worded or insensitive messages hurt relationships and damage reputations. “Lack of clear and empathetic communication is costing businesses billions of dollars annually via customer churn, employee turnover, and lack of organizational alignment,” explains Kirsten Suddath, General Partner at Next Frontier Capital. “mpathic is building an evidenced-based AI communication technology platform on top of its rich library of data and has assembled an industry-leading team of experts in empathic communication and machine learning.”

We welcome underrepresented folx in tech and outside of tech.
Maybe you've been overlooked, faced a glass ceiling, a paperwork barrier, couldn't code switch exactly right, had to up-manage others while doing all the work, don't want to have to deal with feeling tired or like an outsider anymore. We are a tech company run by a psychologist in a tech environment that has a history of systemic problems; we are approaching that history and re-imagining start-up life together, intentionally. Our Board of Directors and VCs are all 100% women or non-binary; our company includes more than 60% persons of color (BIPOC).

Life at mpathic

We are a remote-first company. Whether you work from Baltimore, Salt Lake City, or Seattle, you’re 100% part of the team. We will provide you with a computer, equipment, and access to software subscriptions. At mpathic, we have in-person retreats to build trust twice a year as well as quarterly hackathons to accomplish a specific goal in a short period of time. You can bet we'll be flying to hang out at some point during the year. If you want access to a co-working space - no problem; if you want to work at home - also no problem.

Empathy includes understanding the whole person. When deciding what benefits should look like at mpathic, we started by thinking about what employees need not only to work well but to live well. Benefits impact how we act, rest, grieve, set boundaries, and take care of ourselves and others — and that means quality benefits are a fundamental part of our empathy company and, in the big picture, an empathic society. We have a dedicated Ombudsperson, DEIB Director, and Head of People and Culture dedicated to making your time at empathic safe, values-aligned, and designed to foster growth (We are an empathy company after all!).

You'll have 100% funded employee healthcare benefits, self-managed PTO, and company-wide weeks off among other perks like training and education funding, parental leave, mentorship, and more. See our full benefits policy Benefits at Mpathic, Equal Pay Commitment, and Annual Pay Equity Report (updated 2022). Additionally, see our response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
