Carpe, a Durham, NC-based direct-to-consumer skincare brand, closed a $2.3m seed funding round.
Backers included Triangle Angel Partners and Rubicon Venture Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the brand’s presence in the United States, and to develop additional products for the hyperhidrosis market.
Co-founded by Kasper Kubica and David Spratte in 2015, Carpe produces an antiperspirant lotion designed to reduce hand and foot sweat, especially in patients with hyperhidrosis. Carpe’s formula was specifically formulated for efficacy with no irritation.
