Our Story

Benaiah Co. was born out of our founder's passion for excellence, entrepreneurial skillset and consistent drive to solve new problems.

 

In the Winter of 2019, J.D. Power released an agent satisfaction survey that confirmed that agent satisfaction with service received from insurance carriers is among the lowest of any business relationships measured by J.D. Power. Our founder owned an independent agency and experienced this friction firsthand. After mobilizing with other independent agents, a consistent narrative developed, and an opportunity began to take shape. He saw an opportunity in the insurance industry to create a solution that doesn’t just work through independent agencies but was built to serve them. A stark contrast from any other insurance partner. Reimaging a relationship that had grown stale from decades of impersonal decision making, through Benaiah Management.

 

Through the development of our first solution, Benaiah Management, it became clear that technology was going to be a critical consideration when innovating inside the insurance industry. We began to examine potential bottlenecks and friction points that we could innovate specifically towards. Through this process, Elah Technologies was born. Dedicated to creating best-in-class experiences for carriers, agents, and policyholders through next-generation technology that differentiates our insurance partners in the marketplace.

 

And most recently, as the conversations around cryptocurrency and digital assets were heating up in the fall of 2020, it eventually reached our front door with shareholders and network connections with more traditional investing experience looking for a safe, simple, and easy way to learn more about the opportunities in digital assets. Benaiah Capital was formed through a relationship with Joshua DeWitt, a co-founder of CoinLion digital asset exchange in Sioux Falls, SD. Josh’s mission is to democratize and demystify the arena of cryptocurrency and digital assets for traditional investors to experience the power and freedom of decentralized finance which made him a perfect candidate to partner with Benaiah Capital.

Guided by our values, we hold ourselves accountable to this story and vision.

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said to them, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

-Mark 9:35

STEWARDSHIP

TO BE CAREFUL, RESPONSIBLE AND TRUSTED

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
