Boston, MA — July 25, 2022 – Herald announced today it has been named one of the Top 100 Early-Stage Companies to Work for in 2022 by executive search firm Will Reed. 

Herald’s mission is to expand digital connectivity in commercial insurance, fostering connections between brokers and carriers and making it easier for small businesses to find the coverage they need. Founded just last year, the company raised $8M in a seed round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners in October 2021. Since then Herald has integrated more than 20 different insurance products and connected customers to some of the industry’s leading carriers across several lines of business.

“We’ve worked with hundreds of early-stage B2B tech companies who are on a mission to transform the way we live and work,” said Paige Robinson, Founder & CEO of Will Reed. “We believe the most successful companies are those like Herald, who are committed to building human-first cultures that offer meaningful work and support the full employee experience.” 

Matt Antoszyk, Herald’s Co-Founder & CEO said: “We’re honored to receive this recognition. From day 1, our team has been passionate about creating a vibrant culture and supportive work environment. This has been especially important to us as a distributed company. Everyone here works hard to create connectivity among the team, making Herald a special place to work and helping us to accomplish our bold goals.”
