ABOUT US

Our mission is to reimagine how companies take care of their people by making benefits easy. We believe people are the most important asset to any company. Traditional one-size-fits-all benefits packages no longer cut it in today's hybrid and remote-first environment. With Benepass, companies can personalize every employee’s benefit experience while also driving efficiencies in the overall benefits budget and vendor management.

Benepass offers the most configurable benefits card on the market, and employers can design and distribute multiple benefits programs, including pre-tax (FSA, HSA, Commuter) and employer-funded benefits such as wellness, remote work enablement, professional development, food / meals, family formation, and rewards & recognition. Our goal is to scale with clients over time, as they continue to adjust their benefits programming to meet diverse and dynamic employee needs.

Benepass is a technology company built on modern financial infrastructure, which we consider our key differentiator compared to industry incumbents and other new entrants. With a scalable technology backbone, we have the unique ability to build more benefits use cases on our platform, resulting in a simple, modern, consolidated employee and employer experience.

OUR MISSION

Helping companies reimagine benefits to make them delightful and easy.

OUR INVESTORS

We are backed by leading investors, including Portage Ventures, Threshold Ventures, Gradient Ventures, Workday Ventures, and Clocktower Technology Ventures. To date, the company has raised $35 million of equity capital.
