Edenred Capital Partners supports Beamery in a $28 million new funding round

The Edenred group, via its venture capital structure Edenred Capital Partners, continues to support the UK-based talent management start-up Beamery in a $28 million funding round alongside EQT Ventures and Index Ventures.

Combining elements of customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing software with artificial intelligence, Beamery turns recruiting from a reactive to a proactive function focused on creating meaningful continuous relationships with talent at scale. Notable customers include Facebook, Continental, VMware, Zalando, Grab and Balfour Beatty.

Edenred Capital Partners has been supporting Beamery’s growth since 2015, and continues to strengthen its position in the HR Tech ecosystem and in talent management in particular.

Edenred Capital Partners: at the heart of Edenred’s open innovation system

Founded in 2012, Edenred Capital Partners supports innovative companies with high growth potential, in areas related to Edenred’s activities in order to enrich the Group’s ecosystem. Edenred’s Venture Capital arm has invested in companies such as Andjaro, ProwebCE, and Zenchef in France, Beamery in the UK and Candex in the US.

As the workplace undergoes fundamental changes, this investment will enable Edenred to better understand the changing interactions between companies and people they employ, whether they are employees and self-employed workers.

Edenred Capital Partners has been a great sparring partner from the early days until now and, I am very excited that they are still with us to grow in this new development stage”, said Abakar Saidov, co-founder and CEO of Beamery.
