INVEST IN KEEPERAI TODAY!
Working from home is here to stay (source). The pandemic only exacerbated this inevitability, and now that companies can operate remotely, more people than ever are working jobs where they hardly ever make face-to-face contact with their coworkers or bosses. This trend may have made it easier to reach people in their homes, but it has limited the connection and camaraderie that helps shape an employee’s work experience.
Workers feel more disconnected than ever (source), and it’s hurting companies. To solve this growing crisis of morale, we’ve developed a platform that provides people with a simple and fun way to voice their feelings and feel seen. Not only does our platform help shape the employee experience, but also it aids managers in building effective teams by taking into account a worker’s hard and soft skills.
Employee morale due to feeling disconnected is near an all-time low. In fact, remote employers are struggling to find compelling new ways to improve communication, engagement, and team-building to address this disconnect (source). While the hybridized work structure has given people a newfound work/life balance, corporate America is facing another problem: poor employee experiences.
People are social beings. Water cooler talk, face-to-face conversations, the split-second hello you give your colleague as you walk to the printer, all of these small interactions have a profound effect on an employee’s work experience. Company culture is more important than it has ever been, yet many businesses struggle to create unity among their workers due to the lack of interaction that comes with remote work. If we are to make this new way of operating sustainable, companies will need to find a way to form genuine connections with their employees.
We understand that people are more than their resumes, which is why our platform combines imagery, AI, introspective questions, and behavioral science-driven algorithms to understand an employee’s personality and soft skills. We believe that companies don’t look at an individual’s emotional intelligence (EQ), which is why many managers struggle to build efficient teams. KeeperAI, however, uses all of these critical bits of information to enable people to paint a picture of their personality and, conversely, provides managers with an insightful profile of their team members.
Using KeeperAI is easy. Simply create a profile and our platform will provide you with an interactive dashboard of your personality, working style, mood, interests, and more. Each profile includes a personality graph, affinity groups, mission & vision graph tool, a your color banner, and word cloud to paint a detailed portrait of the unique individual using our software.
Another advantage of KeeperAI is its scalable business model. Given that KeeperAI paints a picture of a person’s personality and is designed to accelerate genuine connections, our product can fit into virtually any industry that requires teamwork and building genuine connections. KeeperAI requires no integration, can work in tandem with other enterprise software and can be “white-labeled” as a behind-the-scenes service that can generate revenue through B2B and B2C channels, and/or through licensing & data.
There’s no substitute for authenticity, and that’s what separates our platform from our competition’s products. While companies are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into the employee engagement software industry, few, if any, are using an approach based on an individual’s EQ and soft skills. Our software can redefine this industry by quantifying and visualizing these traits so employees can connect with each other and managers can run their teams more efficiently.
We don’t just see our product as an employee engagement platform; we see it as a relationship accelerator. Our product is quick, easy-to-use, and fun, which is why we are so confident it will succeed. KeeperAI provides a full picture of an employee’s personality so managers can make better informed decisions on hiring and team building. We believe these attributes are the secret to building a healthy, sustainable company culture in the work-from-home era.
Our confidence in our revolutionary platform is soaring, and we have proof to back it up. The company has been selected to join Microsoft’s Modern Workplace program. The integration has begun amongst both teams as of 6/9/2022. In addition to integration with Microsoft Teams and other Microsoft products, we are also articulating a model for commercialization and business outcomes for the same. Microsoft has more than 250 million monthly active users, so you can only imagine what would happen to our engagement levels (and revenue opportunities) if we can get in front of even a fraction of that audience.
In addition, we have launched five successful B2B pilot cases with major companies: Vodafone, Capgemini, Ogilvy, YRCI, and RingCentral. In particular, our pilot with RingCentral was such a success that we became a premier partner and are currently within their app store. We have also secured a partnership with Dartmouth College to become part of their hybrid workspace solution suite. Lastly, we have two patents pending for our proprietary process that mixes AI, behavioral science principles, and imagery to develop profiles. Our mobile app, which is our B2C model, is in development.
People should have both a work/life balance, and connection with their coworkers. Our idea of a workplace may be changing, but the importance of connecting with those around you isn’t. KeeperAI aims to build real relationships by focusing on the aspects that really define a person. We believe we have the technology, platform, and leadership to change the way people experience work. By investing in KeeperAI you're supporting our cause for creating a culture that focuses on the person, not the position.
KeeperAI is a tech startup that created an innovative, SaaS platform that is redefining how people can share their true selves and how companies hire and manage employees. The company’s platform alchemizes modern tech and imagery to allow people to share their personality profile and other telling soft skills and, likewise, allows hiring managers to develop a comprehensive profile of a current or prospective employee’s personality and skillset. With KeeperAI, people can connect with authenticity and companies can see the real individual, not just their resume.

"There’s never been a more important moment for leaders to make the employee experience a burning priority. Due to the pandemic, both the workplace and workplace culture have endured a seismic shift, and employees are demanding more from the companies they work for.
For the first time in the history of work, money is not the primary motivating driver. Instead, workers long to feel engaged, included, and connected. They want to feel inspired by their company’s leaders and feel they are being listened to as well. They want to have access to the technological tools they need to succeed, and they want to enjoy their work and feel connected to a bigger purpose.
With the 'Great Resignation' showing no signs of slowing down, leaders of remote and hybrid organizations are taking steps to bring their dispersed teams closer together. Having the right collaboration technologies is key, but companies are also discovering that these technologies should support socialization as well. In fact, research from my company, Workplace Intelligence, and Kahoot! finds that 72% of workers say it’s important for them to have fun with their colleagues during the workday.
And it’s not just their colleagues that employees want to feel more connected to. The remote work reality has caused many people to feel disassociated from their company culture and lacking a sense of purpose and meaning in their work.
Looking to the future, it’s clear that good pay and benefits won’t be enough. People desperately want to feel a sense of purpose and connection, and the ideal employee experience will be with a company that contributes to the greater good and helps workers feel like they’re part of something bigger than themselves. Organizations that can provide this type of environment will prosper, and those that don’t may find themselves left behind."

“We see the potential for KeeperAI as a strategic enabler, helping our employees and managers build stronger bonds through improved understanding and well-being in a way that fosters success and helps mobilize our organization to deliver great value.”
Hans Jaeger, Chief Client Development Officer at YRCI
YRCI’s primary output is knowledge; its people and their wisdom are its most valuable assets, so investing in the team and fostering strong relationships is a top priority for the firm. Hans Jaeger, Chief Client Development Officer, reiterated the importance of having face time with teammates. He pointed out how in 2016, the company invested in a “beautiful, new headquarter space.” According to Jaeger, “it was designed to be a destination for our global workforce. A mecca where we could fly our people in from all over the world.”
Of course, with the pandemic, the face-to-face meetings and the events at their shiny new headquarters ground to halt.
The good news was that YRCI was able to pivot quickly and adapt to the new normal. As Dave Spinale, Director, Program Services at YRCI said, “We help customers manage through change and tap into the full potential of their workforce no matter the circumstances, so we were able to tap into that expertise and apply it to our own organization.”
KeeperAI would like to extend our sincere thanks to individuals and groups that have invested in our vision and shown trust in us. We think of you as part of our family.
We are moving forward with goals, and we look forward to a future of connecting people through our amazing platform.
We will continue to raise. Thank you for believing in us!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
