Walker & Company: The next chapter
We’re very excited to announce our Series A round of financing ($6.9mm) led by Andreessen Horowitz with participation from Upfront Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Daher Capital and Johnson + Partners. In addition to the fundraise, we’re pleased to welcome Jeff Jordan to the Walker & Company board of directors.
From the very beginning, each investor has been incredibly supportive of our mission to make health and beauty simple for people of color. We couldn’t be happier to continue partnering with them to make our vision a reality.
As we focus on building scale with the highest level of customer satisfaction, we’ll be drilling down in three key areas:
- Education (Content). “Bevel Code. Amplified.”
- Acceleration (Distribution and Fulfillment). “Bevel in more places where our customers are, and Bevel shipments - Faster. Simpler. Better.”
- Innovation (Research & Development). “New product development. New brand development.”
We have big ideas for all the above and big plans ahead. As always, our customers are - and will continue to be - at the center of everything that we do. In recent weeks we’ve close to doubled our staff in effort to execute on these ideas and serve our customers. We’re still hiring and would love to hear from you. Join us.
We thank our investors and, most importantly, our customers for continuing to believe in us. We are honored by your support and look forward to our bright future together.
