Glambook, a London, UK-based SaaS beauty platform for self-employed professionals and their clients, raising $2.5m in further funding.
The company, which now has an estimated value of $12 million, intends to use the capital to broaden its user base, improve AI-enabled matching technology, and establish beauty co-working spaces.
Led by Anastasia Tomchenko, Glambook is a vertical SaaS platform for the beauty industry designed to create a seamless digital booking experience for independent beauty professionals and their clients. The service allows beauty professionals to work in a flexible environment, i.e., choose where and how to provide their services, whether at home, in a client’s place, in the co-working space, or the salon. Today, the platform has over 100,000 bookings.
Glambook brings together over 20,000 freelance professionals from London, Berlin, Paris, Milan, and 50 other major European cities.
During the first phase, pilot beauty co-working spaces will open in London, allowing independent professionals to reduce the cost of renting a workplace. In addition, more than $100,000 will support Ukrainian beauty professionals forced to leave their country because refugees can use the platform free of charge.
