[Funding Alert] QR Code Engagement Platform Beaconstac bags $25 Mn Series A fund from Telescope Partners and Accel


Beaconstac, the leading QR code customer engagement platform, today announced $25 million in Series A funding led by Telescope Partners, with participation from existing investor, Accel. 

The funding underscores the strong market demand from businesses for Beaconstac’s SaaS platform resulting in profitable revenue growth of 200% for 2022.

Over the past 12 months, Beaconstac has helped businesses of all sizes create and track 1.8 million QR codes that were scanned over 150 million times by consumers. These numbers will continue to accelerate as the number of unique US smartphone users scanning a QR code is poised to reach $99.5 million by 2025. 

This new funding will enable Beaconstac to further develop its market-leading platform, build a world-class team, and ultimately enable new and existing customers to adopt QR codes as a means to create personal connections with a wide audience at scale, and bridge physical world customer experiences to digital. 

Today, Beaconstac is trusted by large enterprises such as Revlon, Nestle, FedEx, and Marriott, and is the leading QR code platform on G2 reaching 20,000 customers in September 2022.

Beaconstac currently employs 75 employees across offices in New York and Bangalore, India with plans to increase its workforce by roughly 200% in 2023. For more information about Beaconstac, its QR code customer engagement platform, and job opportunities.

This funding validates our leadership position in the market and gives us the resources to build additional products on our platform as well as continue helping businesses embrace QR codes for customer engagement.” 

Mickey Arabelovic, Founder at Telescope Partners, said, “It’s clear QR codes are becoming an integral part of how businesses communicate with their customers,” said “The flexibility and insights Beaconstac delivers for businesses set it apart from competitors. We believe the company has the vision and ability to become the largest player in the market.”

Shekhar Kirani, Partner at Accel, said, “While Beaconstac’s revenue growth has been impressive, what makes them unique in my mind is how rapidly they’ve been able to scale to the mid-market and enterprise segments with a product-led growth model.”
