Glamera, Egypt’s B2B beauty platform, raises $1.3m in a Seed round

Glamera, a beauty startup and B2B platform, raised $1.3 million in a Seed funding round led by Riyadh Angel Investors (RAI). The round also witnessed participation from Techstars Accelerator, Ithraa Venture Capital, 100 Ventures, Silicon Valley Venture “Lucrative Ventures”, and Super Angel Investors.

Glamera provides B2B services to beauty and lifestyle services providers such as beauty salons, barber shops, gyms, spas, and makeup artists. The startup also has a B2B2C marketplace where consumers can find these providers and book sessions with them.

The startup was founded in Egypt in 2020 by Mohamed Hassan and Omar Fathy and then relocated to Saudi Arabia. Glamera’s platform now covers Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Taif, Qassim, Madina, and Tabuk in Saudi Arabia and Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt.

“The funds will be used to continue developing and launching the planned new services and expand to more gulf markets,” Omar Fathy, Founder and CTO, said.
