Kona - trust and wellbeing for remote teams.

Our founding team bonded over prior bad experiences with remote work. A terrible manager. A failed startup. A summer of burnout.

We knew work could be better, healthier, and happier. So we turned to experts to learn what makes remote work hard. We've interviewed 1500+ leaders since January 2020.

Their pain was loud and clear. Remote teams are built on trust. But it’s difficult to build relationships and understand how everyone feels without meeting face-to-face.

We built 🐶 Kona to help remote workers support mental health, fight burnout and build connections without changing how they work. We empower leaders to support their teams where they need it most.

To us, empathy and wellbeing at work aren't just an add-on. They're a must-have.

And today, Kona is trusted by 400+ people-first remote teams around the globe.
