Booksy: The Polish ‘Uber of beauty and wellness’ scoops £51M, plans UK expansion

Booksy, an appointment booking app for the beauty and wellness industry, has recently secured a $70 million (approx £51 million) funding in the Series C round. 

The round was led by Cat Rock Capital, with participation from other investors like Sprints Capital, OpenOcean, Piton Capital, VNV Global, Enern, Kai Hansen, Zach Coelius, and Manta Ray Ventures.

The funding will be used to support fast-paced expansion plans across North America, the UK, and other markets as well. In the UK, the company plans to continue taking on the likes of Treatwell.

“At Booksy, our mission is to bring peace of mind to scheduling, giving time back for living life fully,” said founder and CEO Stefan Batory. This latest round of funding enables us to reach even more salons and service providers across the US, and in all the regions we operate, which in turn helps them reach more customers.”

Marketplace for scheduling and managing appointments 

Founded by Polish serial entrepreneurs Stefan Batory and Konrad Howard in 2014, Booksy is the beauty marketplace for finding, scheduling, and managing appointments. 

The platform allows users to automatically schedule at a time that suits them, resulting in 38% of customers booking after-hours and increasing appointment frequency by 20%, generating more revenue for the service provider.
