Glamera, a Cairo-based beauty services platform has expanded to Saudi with the launch of its service in Riyadh, it told MENAbytes today. The move comes a few months after Glamera raised $250,000 in seed funding from a Saudi angel investor.
Launched last year, Glamera enables users to book appointments for different beauty and health services at beauty salons and clinics, spas, gyms, diet clinics, and dental clinics, using its mobile app (available for both Android and iOS).
The startup now has close to 500 service providers in its network including 80 in Riyadh and claims to have served over 70,000 users since its launch in July 2019.
Mohamed Hassan, the co-founder and CEO of Glamera, speaking to MENAbytes about the initial response in Saudi, said that they are very happy with it, “We already have 80 providers in Riyadh and have processed over 200 orders in the first week.”
He also told MENAbytes that they’re planning to launch in Jeddah and Dammam as well within this year, before expanding to the rest of GCC.
Dhafer Al Shehri, the co-founder of Glamera, said, “We are working on some innovative improvements in the product that we will be launching very soon.”
