“Energize Ventures will be a strong strategic partner for us as Beekeeper continues to gain market share within the manufacturing and industrial space. As the digitization of the employee experience continues to gain global momentum, more and more companies are searching for innovative ways to connect with their frontline teams,” said Cristian Grossman, CEO and Co- Founder at Beekeeper. “We look forward to working closely with the leadership at Energize Ventures to expand Beekeeper’s reach and continue our mission to connect the unconnected.”
