Experienced UK-based entrepreneur Alicia Navarro has announced the close of an around €1.3 million pre-seed investment round to fund her latest venture, Flown.
Flown is a new online platform that aims to help knowledge workers achieve “deep work”. By matching them with inspiring properties setup for productive and ergonomic remote work, as well as providing an array of interactive tools and resources, Flown will provide the ideal mental and physical spaces required for knowledge workers to get away from their day-to-day work environments to do their most productive and creative work.
Available to both individuals and teams, Flown has two core offerings: Flown Away (a highly curated list of homes, hotels and retreat spaces that are fully equipped for distraction-free, ergonomic and productive remote working, from a cabin in the woods equipped with a large screen monitor, to a countryside cottage equipped with whiteboard and display screen) and Flown Here (collection of resources and interactive tools to help workers establish more effective ‘deep work’ rituals – from virtual accountability groups to perception-shifting creative challenges).
Navarro will be using the funding to continue building out the Flown platform ahead of its formal launch in the UK and Portugal, as well as on-boarding new properties and bolstering Flown’s growing team. Working alongside Navarro, Flown’s founding team includes talent from Mr & Mrs Smith, Ometria, Quill, McKinsey’s Generation, and Resi.
