The startup’s mobile app — which was released in July — enables users to book and pay for appointments for health and beauty services from 200 partners that range from spas, beauty salons, gyms and cosmetic clinics.
Tech publication MenaBytes reported in an article yesterday that Glamera will use the funding to increase its partners to 1000, in addition to expanding its services in Cairo, Alexandria and two other governorates in the country as well as to Saudi Arabia.
