Fingerprint for Success (F4S), a Sydney, Australia-based artificial intelligence (AI)-based performance coaching startup, announced that it raised a new AU$5 million in seed funding, bringing the total seed investment to AU$9 million.
The round was led by Investible, with participation from Australia and the U.S. VCs, including Five V Capital and Salesforce Ventures.

"There has been a focus until now for companies to prioritize hard, technical skills deemed necessary for performance. Though, it's actually the 'soft' or what we like to call human skills that have proven time and time again to make or break teams and are the most crucial in building goal-oriented, efficient and purpose-driven teams" Michelle Duval - Founder & CEO - Fingerprint for Success (F4S) says, "There's a driving need to rapidly grow resources and solutions to solve the complex problems Gen Alpha, GenZs and Millennials inherit.
