Whispli's Story

Whispli was co-founded by a whistleblower who uncovered over $20 million in fraud.

Our mission is to make people feel comfortable to speak up to their organizations by letting them remain truly anonymous.

Meet Sylvain, co-founder of Whispli

Back in 2012, Sylvain Mansotte uncovered a $20M fraud that spanned 12 years in his former company.

"During the process of blowing the whistle on this fraud and in my subsequent experience as a Risk Manager, I was astonished to discover that most organisations do not have appropriate systems enabling their people to come forward, and do so safely and without any fear. Whispli is the answer to that need."
