BEWE.io, the leading management software services company specializing in the wellness, fitness and beauty sectors, has closed a new round of financing, led by DILA Capital and SEAYA Ventures, in order to strengthen its U.S. presence and support its international expansion into new markets.
The company, a leader in the Spanish-speaking market, allows its customers to create a personalized app for their business and with which their own customers can make reservations and pay for their subscription. Thanks to BEWE, businesses that use its platform, including Pilates, yoga, CrossFit, gyms, physiotherapy clinics, spas and hair and beauty salons, can control their agenda, charge through a POS, keep accounts of their centers, stocks, customer database and use marketing and loyalty tools such as sending email campaigns or SMS messages.
At the moment, the Spanish startup founded by Diego Ballesteros is present in 20 countries and offers its integral management solutions to more than 2,500 clients. With the new round of financing it seeks to expand its presence in the Anglo-Saxon market by offering comprehensive solutions to new clients in English-speaking markets.
BEWE works to help small businesses become big business and demonstrated this a few months ago, presenting new projects and conditions so that their clients could face with more resources the health and economic crisis that began in March. At the beginning of April, the startup launched new free functionalities that offered businesses a platform that allowed them to continue their activity despite the limitations of confinement and offered them, through WeCare – Homeby Bewe, the option of giving classes and courses online. In addition, it offered all its services free of charge and without any permanence until the entrepreneurs could reopen their establishments.
Thanks to their commitment and despite the difficult economic situation, Ballesteros’ startup has obtained a new round of financing which will mean an injection of 2 million euros. This will allow them to continue their efforts to grow and to offer the best service to the different businesses with which they collaborate.
“It is paradoxical to think that, in a situation like the present one, we have been able to move forward with a new funding round of 2 million euros. We always say that success is the result of effort and work, but it is not until moments like this, of crisis, that the value and commitment of a company to its stakeholders is truly demonstrated,” Diego Ballesteros explains. “During these last months, more than ever, we have been on the front line giving support to our clients. This capital injection shows us that we are doing things right, that we have a lot to offer in new markets and that investors are willing to bet on us”.
