Nava Raises $20M in Funding

Nava, a NYC-based employee benefits brokerage, raised $20m in financing.


Thrive Capital made the investment.

Co-founded by Brandon Weber, Chief Executive Officer, Donald DeSantis, Chief Product Officer, and Kareem Zaki of Thrive Capital, a lead investor in the company, Nava offers unified benefits combining modern healthcare tools, year-round employee advocacy, and ongoing measurement to improve employee engagement and drive down costs for small-to-midsized companies.

For brokers, Nava enables them to focus on producing meaningful outcomes for their clients – by supporting them with lead generation, account management, and employee advocacy platform.

To support its growth, Nava recently expanded its executive team to include Joseph Donovan, Chief Revenue Officer & Benefits Consulting Leader (UnitedHealthcare, The Difference Card); John Capecelatro, Director of Operations (Pill Pack (acquired by Amazon)); Colleen Locke, Director of Client Success (Willis Towers Watson, Namely); and Veronique Valcu, VP of Marketing (Deloitte, AppNexus (acquired by AT&T)).
