Des Plaines, Illinois startup Booksy, Inc. has raised $13.2 million in early-stage venture funding in a deal lead by Piton Capital in July 2018. Other investors in the deal include Enern Sebastian Kulczyk, Zach Coelius, Vostok New Ventures, OpenOcean and other undisclosed investors.

The company plans to use the funds to accelerate global growth, new hiring, and to develop proprietary technologies, including the implementation of one-click booking, a machine learning and AI feature that uses buying patterns to offer users the best appointment dates with their favorite stylists. Booksy has raised $8.2 million to date. Booksy co-founders are Stefan Batory and Konrad Howard.

Booksy enables business users to create full profiles to attract customers, set up calendars, and manage their client database and appointment scheduling, while beauty clients benefit from up-to-date access to services, pricing, and availability. The company uses two apps, Booksy Biz for businesses and Booksy for clients.

Booksy announced in May 2018 that it has integrated with Instagram business profiles, enabling viewers to auto-book appointments directly through Instagram with professionals who use the Booksy app.

Andrin Bachmann, co-founder and partner at Picton Capital, stated in a press release: “We are delighted to back Stefan and the entire team at Booksy again. They are starting to see the benefits of a strong network effect, and we believe they have an opportunity to build the leading SaaS-enabled marketplace in the beauty industry in the US and beyond.
