Company Overview:

At Beam (formerly Edquity), we’re building technology for the social safety net that empowers institutions and government leaders to deliver funding equitably, efficiently, and securely to those who need it most. Our research-backed approach streamlines the administration of benefits while also addressing common pitfalls in program management — including racial bias, inefficiency, compliance risk, and lack of transparency and monitoring — to quickly deliver funds to those with the greatest need. Since 2020, we’ve delivered more $300M in cash grants to hundreds of thousands of people in need through our platform.

Beam is a Series A stage, venture-backed company and has received support from many of the leading impact and postsecondary success investors and has also received non-dilutive support from foundations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
