Mark Alhermizi, January 28th, 2019
As we enter a new year, I am excited to announce that Everdays has quadrupled it’s worth to nearly $100 million in just 20 months. We recently closed our Series A funding round, and Houston-based Gordy Companies, a multi-billion dollar investment firm, led the $12 million investment, validating our mission to change the landscape of communication about death.

My Personal Experience
The support a family receives during the critical times after the passing of a loved one is small, short-lived and painfully analog. It’s what I experienced when my dad, Ike Alhermizi, passed away a few years ago. It was such a hard and debilitating time, and there was no technology to guide or support the process to make it easier for me, or the community of family and friends who wanted to support me. Everdays is solving that problem and de-stigmatizing conversations around death, helping people feel more comfortable by offering the right kind of support when it’s needed most.
Receiving Funding From High-networth Family Investment Offices
As an entrepreneur I know that a good business solves a problem, and I saw a giant opportunity to serve the millions of people who experience the loss of a loved one every year by giving them a way to bring their communities together at a time that matters most. The demand for the offering was so strong that competitive bidding drove Everdays valuation far past my expectations. This allowed me the luxury of passing on traditional venture capital in favor of high-networth family investment offices that are true partners who identify and align with our mission.
As our impact in the community grows, we are working to rapidly expand our Birmingham, Michigan based team. I plan to at least double our team of 30 over the next 12 months, hiring aggressively in all areas including marketing and product development.
