Investment thesis

« The beauty industry is one of the largest markets not having been truly disrupted by technology. As with the booming market of ‘booking platform for doctors’, tens of thousands of beauty shops in France are expecting a dedicated SaaS platform to help them gain visibility, and to increase their customer base and revenue. The founding team of the company is made of seasoned entrepreneurs and experts of similar technological solutions, having built and successfully developed a comparable platform, but not dedicated to the beauty industry. »

Who are they ?

Antoine Puymirat (ex CEO and founder of ClicRDV), Jérémy Queroy (ex Regional director at Schwarzkop), and Paul Vonderscher (ex Lead Developer at ClicRDV) launched Planity in Q4 2016.
