Bambee, the L.A. startup offering HR services for $99 a month, has seen a boom in sales from small businesses struggling during the pandemic. On Thursday, the company announced it closed a $15 million Series B round led by QED Investors.
Between January and July of this year, Bambee's customer base grew by five times, as more companies hire HR to help navigate furloughs and PPP loans.

Siddarth Pandiya, the 20-year-old founder of Sike Insights, likes to say he was into remote work before remote work was cool.
He founded Sike Insights from his dorm in October 2019 with Andrew Zhou and Corine Tan, two fellow UCLA students. The three had made several different projects at hackathons and in the entrepreneurship fraternity Sigma Eta Pi before scrapping them all entirely and creating the artificial intelligence platform aimed at managers trying to stay in tune with remote workers.
Christian Peverelli thinks enterprise software companies can be successfully built by entrepreneurs like himself, without any technical skills.
The co-founder and chief executive officer of WeAreNoCode, Peverelli started his Los Angeles-based company to teach founders digital skills to launch a company without writing a line of code.
"This is what's gonna really change the future of not only entrepreneurship, but also product development overall," Peverelli said. He was inspired after watching other non-tech entrepreneurs like himself fail or dole out tons of cash on expensive programmers.
