Vaniday, a Berlin, Germany-based beauty and wellness company, raised €15m in its first funding round.
Backers included existing investor Rocket Internet as well as other partners.
Led by Founder and Global CEO Maxime Legardez, Vaniday is an international marketplace for beauty and wellness services. It allows customers to discover and book beauty and wellness appointments, directly off salons’ calendars. Salons, in turn, can showcase their work and directly connect with new and existing clients.
Signing up to the platform is entirely free of charge and no monthly fees apply. Vaniday charges a commission only when confirmed bookings occur through the platform.
The platform, which already signed approximately 1500 salons, provides partnered salons with updated CRM, marketing, and online-booking tools.
Launched in March 2015, the company is currently operating in Brazil, the UK, Italy, France and the UAE with further expansion planned within the next few weeks.
