Pomp, a platform that connects estheticians with consumers, raised an oversubscribed $1.5 million seed funding round led by FirstMile Ventures.
WHO: Founded by Shannon Erley and Nicole Cox in 2019, Denver-based Pomp virtually connects consumers with licensed estheticians to provide personal service and curated selections from natural and clinical skincare brands. A B2B platform, Pomp Professional helps estheticians connect more with their customers with virtual consultations, complete orders, and access additional products.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS: "We are now going after estheticians who can utilize the platform for themselves and their clients and service their clients virtually," Erley said. "We're really tapping into a highly fragmented group of individuals."
"We could've done it ourselves, it just would've been a slower growth trajectory," Erley said. "We know there's a huge opportunity to jump on this now especially with the way estheticians are working, or not working, with their clients.”
- Pomp closed an oversubscribed seed funding led by FirstMile Ventures with participation from Kickstart Ventures, SpringTime Ventures, GAN Ventures, and Service Provider Capital.
- Jessie Dixon, former co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Havenly, joined the board of directors.
