THE WHAT? Book Salon has announced that it has raised €3 million in funding in a round led by US-based Joint Effects, with participation by Big Bets VC.
THE DETAILS The latest round follows a successful €1 million seed round in September, last year. The Finnish start-up provides entrepreneurs with a full suite of modern tools to run a successful business.
THE WHY? Book Salon’s goal is to help the 65 percent of European salons with no digital systems in place, rolling out its all-in-one payment processing and booking platform to European beauty and wellness service providers. The funding will be used for European expansion, with the first targets identified as the Nordics, UK, Ireland, Spain and Italy.
