Enterprise Bot Startup Kryon Raises New Round, Continues to Lay Off Employees
Despite securing new funding, the company recently let several dozens of its 160 employees go because of the coronavirus pandemic
In response to Calcalist’s request for comment, a Kryon company spokesperson said that “in 2019, Kryon doubled its workforce in corporate offices in the U.S., Singapore, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Israel. The coronavirus crisis obliged us to prioritize essential projects. As part of the restructuring, we laid off about 20 to 30 employees. We estimate that, in late 2020, we will hire more people than we laid off.”
Last month, Calcalist reported that Kryon developed an automated system for Israeli health maintenance organization (HMO) Maccabi Healthcare Services, which enables the HMO to process coronavirus (Covid-19) patient data quickly and share it with Israel’s Ministry of Health.
