At a Glance

NayaDaya Oy empowers companies and investors to identify and manage HR risks, such as resignation, M&A and investment failures. NayaDaya developed Empathy Analytics®, a unique solution based on emotions and science to truly understand the root causes behind employee engagement and disengagement.

Traction and Ask

With €111k net revenues in 2022 and 10 customers, such as Finnish financial administration service Rantalainen Group, NayaDaya is now looking to raise €150k pre- seed funding. The ideal investor would have expertise in M&A, buyout investments, HR, and the Nordics market. The investment is needed to:

  1. Go-to Market: marketing, sales, opening 5-10 long-term customer relationships in Finland and Nordics by Q4 2023
  2. Deepen Strategic Partnerships: especially Deloitte 
  3. Execute Tech Roadmap: more scalable and automated order-delivery process

Market, Business Model, Financials and Team

Founded in 2016, located in Tampere (Finland), NayaDaya is poised to capture a significant share of the global M&A focused HR analytics market worth €2Bn (+4-8% CAGR/Year). 

NayaDaya is monetizing mainly through analytics as a service: automated service process with recurring revenue charged to companies with inorganic growth and capital investors, starting from the Nordic countries. Revenue growth is projected at 3x YoY (breakeven in Q4 2023, reaching €900k by the end of 2024).

NayaDaya team of 7 (2 co-founders and 5 partners) combines several decades of experience in emotion and behavior science, marketing, communication, data analytics, HR, and management consulting. 

Competitive Advantage

Unlike Empathy Analytics®, traditional satisfaction and NPS surveys and pulses such as Survey Monkey, Questback, and Officevibe fail to measure engagement or disengagement levels and their underlying reasons.

By utilizing emotions and science, Empathy Analytics® effortlessly identifies these levels and causes. In addition, unlike traditional surveys, Empathy Analytics® provides valuable insights into HR risks, including employee and productivity loss, using just three standard questions. It does so without relying on pre-selected questions, making it a unique and unmatched solution in the market.

Round Details

At a €955k pre-money valuation, NayaDaya aims to close this pre-seed round by August 31, 2023 or until €150k is secured. Some minority investors have already committed to join with €72,5k, which includes €50k from the current owners. The minimum investment ticket size is €15k.

NayaDaya Oy has previously invested €189k of its own capital and raised €105k in grants from Business Finland and Ely-keskus and €245k in loans from Business Finland and Nordea to develop the product market fit and business model, which means that, after this investment round is secured, NayaDaya is fully ready for international commercial uptake. NayaDaya is seeking to exit in 3-4 years at a target valuation of €10M.
