Glamera, a Cairo-based beauty service booking platform, has raised a six-figure amount from Saudi Arabia’s Dual Gate Investment Holding.

Although the exact amount of the funding is unknown, it comes barely a year after Glamera acquired a $250,000 investment from an angel investor.

The new funds are aimed at expanding the startup’s operations across Riyadh and Jeddah, both cities in Saudi Arabia.

Glamera was launched in 2019 by Omar Fathy, Zafer Alshehri and Mohammed Hassan.

Hassan, Chief Executive Officer(CEO) and co-founder of Glamera stated that, COVID-19 has led to a boost in demand for the company’s services.

“The current circumstances have prompted users to realise the importance of pre-booking for all services including the beauty sector and raised awareness of the providers for joining the app to schedule their client’s appointments through pre-booking”, he noted.

Glamera is a mobile platform where women can book appointments for beauty and health services at spas, salons, gyms and diet and dental clinics.

Users can browse different services to find the available options, check out the prices, book appointments and pay for services right from the app.

It also connects users with health and beauty specialists to provide consultations from a wide selection of hairdressers and doctors.

Currently, the platform has 100,000 active users and 600 providers in Egypt as well as 120 in Riyadh.
