AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Betterleave, a pioneering platform that partners with organizations to improve access, experience, and outcomes, while lowering the total cost of bereavement care, today announced it has raised $2.4 million in funding. The round was led by Chingona Ventures, with participation from Bread and Butter Ventures, Vitalize VC, Wisdom Ventures Fund, Coyote Ventures and AARP. Betterleave brings a differentiated, integrated approach to grief and mental health, by offering a comprehensive digital and clinical care solution that addresses the complex challenges individuals face when preparing for and navigating bereavement.
Bereavement is a growing category of care designed to help organizations connect with and support members during the grieving process. The need for such services is evident, with more than 30M+ working Americans caring for an adult, making caregivers the fastest-growing employee population. Despite the prevalence of grief, there has been a critical gap in support and resources to navigate the professional, financial, and emotional challenges of loss. Recent national legislative changes and the impact of Covid-19 have further underscored the relevance of grief management in the workplace.
