Bangalore-based wellness services startup, Gomalon, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in a form of strategic partnership with a company that makes essential oils, natural food colours and spice extracts.
Gomalon was founded in 2015 by Anil Kumar as a discovery and booking platform for wellness centres. The startup has recently launched an on-demand spa booking service GoSpa with real-time management. The users can book appointments through web and mobile app. Gomalon has also aligned its services with various digital wallets like PayU, Mobikwik and PayZapp to assist in making hassle-free and cashless payments. The service is currently available in 20 locations in Bangalore.
The startup will utilise the new investment in increasing traction via marketing, advancing in technology and acquiring talent.
Anil Kumar, founder of Gomalon, said, “For Gomalon, the biggest opportunity lies in standardising 80% of standalone beauty parlours and spas through their technology, helping maintain brand individuality and giving standardised products. We are aiming to have our presence in five countries and 50 cities in the next three years and looking for further rounds of investments in the firm.”
Prior to this, Gomalon had raised $200K in angel investment from a few angels investors. Earlier in November 2015, Gomalon acquired Bookmyspa and launched its own version of “Deals” for spa/salons in 2016.
