According to Richards, Homebase has more than 2 million employees, making up more than 2% of the workforce, which is impressive for a private company. He argues that if the numbers continue to grow, Homebase could become an important player in technology and finance.

During 2021, Homebase raised $71 million in revenue. Since then, Homebase has expanded financial services and introduced AI-powered products, such as its automated payroll system has increased. The company is also developing an automated tip management system.

Homebase raised $169 million in equity financing. By 2021, the company is estimated to be worth between $500 million and $600 million. Waldman did not confirm this valuation but said it is not moderate.

Earlier this year, Philip Moon was hired as the new CFO, bringing experience from Square and Grove Collective. Rushi Patel, co-founder and COO of the company, also took on the role of Chief financial officer.

Waldman emphasized the importance of quality work in community health and emphasized the importance of using technology to empower staff and improve service delivery.
