COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Beam Benefits, the digitally-led employee benefits company, today announced that it raised $40 million, bringing the company’s total funding to over $200 million and increasing its valuation by 25% since the company’s Series E raise in early 2021.
The round was led by existing investor Georgian, with broad sponsorship from a combination of new, existing, and strategic partner investors.
