As co-founder of beam, a CBD-forward holistic wellness brand, Matt Lombardi is on a mission to reimagine health and wellness. A former professional athlete, Matt played hockey with the New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins before career-ending injuries cut his time in the NHL short. What could have been perceived as a setback was actually the catalyst for his future in entrepreneurship. In 2018, along with his business partner Kevin Moran, the duo co-founded beam after noticing a lack of transparency in the wellness industry.
With Matt serving as co-CEO, beam is committed to offering effective wellness products that harness the benefits of natural, non-toxic nano CBD and other high-quality ingredients, empowering others to push their limits and pursue their passions by improving their physical and mental wellness. At the beginning of 2020 beam announced a $5 million Series A, led by C2 Ventures bringing the total raise thus far to $12 million, which includes a $5 million seed round in 2019, led by Obvious Ventures.
Matt continues to push his own limits with ongoing athletic endeavors from running the Boston Marathon and CrossFit training to a journey of product innovation and brand development, all while inspiring others on their personal #pursuitforbetter.
