NaturallyCurly Network Raises $1.2M

Jun 23, 2011

By PEHub Administrator The NaturallyCurly Network, a social network for people with wavy to curly hair, has raised $1.2 from company chair Jimmy Treybig, the founder of Tandem Computers, along with John Paul Mitchell Systems co-founder John Paul DeJoria, and the angel investor network Golden Seeds. The round, billed as a C round in a release, brings the total raised by the Austin-based company to $3.2 million. PRESS RELEASE: The NaturallyCurly Network, (NaturallyCurlyNetwork.com), the leading social network and community for people with wavy, curly and kinky hair and the brands and professionals who service them, announced today that it has raised nearly $1.2 million in Series C growth-stage financing. The company also announced plans to invest the funds in talent, acquisitions, infrastructure enhancements, new mobile applications, and marketing initiatives to expand community reach and engagement. With its most recent round in funding completed, the Austin, TX-based social media company has raised approximately $2 million in total during the past four years, and achieved a profitable and cash-flow-positive year in 2010, according to NaturallyCurly CEO Crista Bailey. “Our latest round is a testament to the business team’s performance — we’ve consistently grown revenues and visits, in triple-digit percentages, over the most recent years while achieving profitability,” Bailey said. “Our passion and vision, and the counsel we receive directly from our angel investors, is reflected in what we’ve achieved. Among our angels are astute business leaders who are involved closely with us — and I deeply appreciate their acumen and hands-on advice as we chart our way forward.” Among strategic investors present in all fundraising rounds is NaturallyCurly Chairman Jimmy Treybig, founder of Tandem Computers. Investor newcomers include John Paul Mitchell Systems co-founder John Paul DeJoria, whose existing advisory role with the company has led to strategic relationships and ties with multiple industry leaders, and Golden Seeds, a nationwide angel network and venture capital firm with offices in New York City, Boston and San Francisco. “NaturallyCurly represents ingredients that investors look for — a passionate team, a proven concept, a highly evolved and engaged customer community, and a willingness and drive to constantly innovate,” Jimmy Treybig said. “Through solid, focused business leadership, this recipe has translated to profitability — and a clear strategy for its continued growth. This business, in my view, is one social media company to watch.” The NaturallyCurly Network recently named its first Chief Marketing Officer, Christopher Burkhart, and, according to Bailey, is currently seeking additional talented expertise in technology and marketing. The company soon will announce a mobile platform and launch a consumer mobile application featuring a daily Frizz Forecast™, thousands of product reviews and a stylist/curl specialist finder. A global consumer packaged goods brand is sponsoring the “app” launch, which will be highly promoted to the network’s online community, which now exceeds 1 million monthly unique visitors, and beyond.
