BeMe Health, a Miami, FL-based creator of an interventional behavioral health platform for teens, raised $1.5m in funding.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS) made the investment, which built upon a previous investment from philanthropist Carrie Walton Penner through Fiore Ventures, as well as investments from Flare Capital, Polaris Partners, California Health Care Foundation, and others.
This funding will help the company build on its current app enhancements for teens, while its new partnership will further expand efforts to empower all teens — including those covered by BCBSKS
