COLUMBUS, Ohio (October 18, 2023) – Beam Benefits, a digitally-led employee benefits company, announced today that its co-founder and CEO, Alex Frommeyer, has been recognized by Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) as one of the Most Exceptional Entrepreneurs of 2023 at its Builders and Innovators Summit in Healdsburg, California.
Frommeyer co-founded Beam in 2012 while attending the University of Louisville with a mission to modernize dental benefits and give people access to affordable services. After much success with its Bluetooth-connected toothbrush known as the Beam Brush, which would become one of the earliest examples of the Internet of Things in healthcare, the company evolved into a one-stop shop for ancillary benefits, offering dental, vision, life, disability, and supplemental health coverage available across the U.S.
“I am deeply honored to be recognized by Goldman Sachs as this is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Beam team," said Frommeyer. “We started this journey with a vision to revolutionize how businesses approach employee benefits, and it is incredibly gratifying to see our efforts acknowledged on such a prestigious platform.”
Goldman Sachs selected Frommeyer from multiple industries to be honored at the event.
“We’re delighted to recognize Alex Frommeyer as one of the most exceptional entrepreneurs of 2023,” said David Solomon, Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. “Like everyone in this year’s class, Alex has been a visionary in the field, pushing forward innovation and redefining markets. We are excited to harness Goldman’s convening power to bring together these dynamic leaders and hear their insights.”
In addition to honoring the most exceptional entrepreneurs, the Summit consists of general sessions and clinics led by seasoned entrepreneurs, academics, business leaders, and resident scholars.
