The DC-based millennial self-care editorial platform and newsletter A Girls Night In (GNI) raised a pre-seed funding round of $500,000 from SV Angel, Third Kind Capital, and Combine VC. The brainchild of millennial founder Alisha Ramos, GNI launched two years ago and is a “newsletter for women who’d rather stay in tonight.”
“We’re really trying to double down on our mission statement, which is to help women relax, recharge, and build more meaningful communities,” Ramos told Fast Company.
With a subscriber list of 100,000 like-minded consumers, 62K followers on Instagram, and 5-10% month-over-month word-of-mouth growth, the platform has attracted advertising from brands like Netflix and Everlane. The funding will allow the business to invest in more offline events.
