Helsinki-based Book Salon has raised €3 million in funding just six months after raising its previous €1 million seed round.
This provider of payment and booking services specializes in beauty, hair and wellness.
The round was led by Joint Effects and saw the participation of previous investor Big Bets VC.
The funds will be used to expand Europe, with the Nordics, Ireland, Spain and Italy being the first targets.
Startups offer entrepreneurs a complete suite of modern tools for running a successful business.
The platform also provides payment terminals and payment processing services, as well its website builder and online booking systems.
What is the platform’s new value?
Salons and entrepreneurs are welcome to use the platform at no cost. However, they can upgrade to a paid plan with unlimited users.
This makes it accessible, profitable, and transparent to micro-entrepreneurs.
