Motivated. Calm. Committed. Entrepreneur. These words describe Laura Sage, CEO of Chill Anywhere. Chill Anywhere is a mindfulness app used by businesses large and small to provide customized mindfulness content to help employees feel better. A novel idea? It seems post Covid companies are thinking even more about the mental health of their workforce and looking for opportunities to help employees shed some of their stress. The end result is more productive and happier workers.
Laura’s early career is informed by two distinct disciplines, finance and philanthropy. As a marketer for an institutional hedge fund she traveled extensively both domestically and internationally calling on potential clients. Philanthropically she was and continues as the Co-Chair for the Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation (her mom) very near and dear to her heart.
Chill started as a passion project and became a self fulfilling practice that helped her work through her own challenges with self doubt and well-being. In April 2017 Laura opened Chill in a studio in River North. At that time the business focused on providing meditation, mindfulness and yoga classes to local Chicagoans. Organically a B to B market developed and companies clamored to host their own programs for their employees. Chill Anywhere, the app, was born. It worked. Not only were employees feeling better and spreading the word, company leadership believed in the process after seeing proof in the productivity and attitudes of their workers.
Chill Anywhere provides companies anywhere with the ability to survey their workforces to learn more to further assist with well being and growth. Each company works with a Chill team member who provides custom content based on survey findings. The app enjoys many capabilities and is easy to navigate.
Now almost a year old, Chill Anywhere continues to grow and evolve. Their initial funding round was subscribed to by family and friends investors. Laura is actively planning another funding round in the near future.
For more information about Chill Anywhere, contact Laura@chillanywhere.com. The app is fabulous and available for two weeks free of charge. Thereafter a subscription option is available for a monthly or discounted annual fee. Check it out. If you are like me, I was instantly engaged.
