Ulula, a NYC- and Toronto, Canada-based software and analytics platform that equips companies with tools to monitor human rights risks, raised $1m in seed funding.
Backers included Humanity United, a foundation that is part of the Omidyar Group, and Good & Well, an impact investment firm that partners with early stage social purpose businesses.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its mobile platform.

Clients can access continuous information on working conditions based on worker driven insights. Its model leverages more than 800 telecom partnerships and local partnerships creating a platform capable of reaching the most rural and vulnerable populations using mobile technology.
The solution can be configured on almost any communication channel in any language.
