Bangalore: StayGlad, Bengaluru based mobile marketplace for beauty services, raises undisclosed amount of angel funding from Sahil Barua (Co-Founder, Delhivery), Tracxn Labs and few other investors. The company is currently operational only in Bangalore; thus, plans to utilize the funds to expand to other cities and also launch its mobile app.
Founded in 2015 by IIT Kharagpur alumni Prateek Jain, Shashank Gupta and Kavish Desai, StayGlad (operated by Glow Prime Technologies Pvt. Ltd.) is a platform that enables customers to get beauty, styling and ‘get ready’ services at their doorstep. It helps the customers find verified, trained, experienced and certified beauty service professionals who are acknowledged for exploiting best products and standardized procedures.
The company aims to start 20 minute appointments where one can get ready for an event by booking an appointment with a beautician and ordering a particular style and make-up look they like. Customers will be able to select a particular look and the professional will drape the sari or do up a hair style and apply makeup as per the skin tone and the occasion in just 30 mins.
On the other hand, earlier this year, Dubai-based beauty and wellness mobile marketplace, Vyomo secured funding from Yuvraj Singh’s YouWeCan Ventures and Mumbai-based beauty and skincare e-retailer, Purplle.com raised an undisclosed amount of funding from IvyCap Ventures.
