Welcome is an HR software company that helps organizations to make and close offers to their potential employees. It helps employees understand their total compensation(cash, equity, benefits, and perks) in a way that makes sense to them.
On August 19, 2020, Welcome was launched with a funding of $1.4 million.
It is the first offer management and closing company founded by Nick Gavronsky and Rick Pereira. It is funded by a variety of investors like Ludlow Ventures, Weekend Fund, Shrug Capital, Basement Fund, Global Founders Capital, Basecamp Fund, and several others.
On December 2, 2020, Welcome announced a close of $6M seed round which was led by FirstMark Capital along with other participating investors like Ludlow Ventures, Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg, and Keenan Rice and Ben Porterfield (which were existing investors) and few more.
Apart from the “Welcome raises $6M capital” announcement, they also launched a new product Total Rewards and early access to their real-time compensation data products.

Welcome says that they'll be using this funding on the development of products and hiring employees for their company.
Total Rewards is a product that organizations can use to help employees visualize and understand their financial relationship with the Company as a part of the performance review process. This is expected to help them with ongoing retention.

They've been testing their total rewards product with a selected group of customers and expecting to hand it out to more companies as they're entering into the end of year performance review season.
Real-Time compensation data is an accurate and reliable product that will help HR teams to figure out what to offer candidates and how to compensate their team as they grow- and improve pay equity in the process.
Currently, they are running an invite-only program around real-time compensation data that they will be releasing to the public in the first half of 2021.
