Empathy, a platform that helps families navigate the journey that comes after the loss of a loved one, today announced the availability of its app on iOS and Android for users in the United States. Empathy’s technology-enabled platform is intended to guide bereaved families with purpose and compassion. Empathy has received $13 million in a seed round led by General Catalyst and Aleph.

Every year, at least three million Americans die, leaving many bereaved families in distress, not only from their loss but also from the logistical nightmare that follows. In the weeks and months following a death, these families spend an average of over 500 hours dealing with immediate needs such as funeral arrangements and will validation, as well as long-term processes such as account cancellations, estate administration, benefit claims, and property cleanout. Technology makes this bureaucracy more efficient, allowing families to focus on dealing with emotional consequences and being there for one another.Empathy aibased 30m entreacutecapitallundentechcrunch.

“It’s human nature’s inherent optimism that causes us to avoid talking about death,” said Ron Gura, Co-Founder & CEO of Empathy. “But because we don’t talk about it, we miss out on important opportunities to innovate and provide technology that can help families manage some of life’s most difficult moments – leaving families overwhelmed and underserved. Logistics are complicated by grief, and grief is complicated by logistics. Software can and will play a significant role in assisting families in dealing with loss, and will hopefully drive much-needed change in the industry as a whole.”

Empathy is a digital companion application designed to empower bereaved families by combining technology and human support. Empathy’s software streamlines end-of-life bureaucracy, reduces time-consuming tasks, and automates estate administration processes. Simplified steps help families complete action items, make informed decisions, and avoid common errors. Each user’s experience is tailored to ensure that families are not overwhelmed by an abundance of information. Human assistance is available to provide users with both emotional and practical support, resulting in a hybrid experience to assist families in navigating arrangements and grief.The death of empathy.

“The end-of-life industry is a large sector that has been untouched by the wave of digital transformation that has occurred in every other industry,” Joel Cutler, Co-Founder and Managing Director at General Catalyst, said. “Empathy is unique in that it addresses both the emotional and logistical distress associated with loss. We believe that this technology and experience can significantly benefit every family.” This does indeed show the impact they are having in the very best way. This does talk a lot special things about the factor.
