Urban Massage, a UK-based wellness app that books on-demand massage at home, has successfully secured more than £2.6 million through its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. The funding round recently launched, seeking a minimum of £2.5 million and has so far attracted nearly 400 investors.
Founded in 2014, Urban Massage stated its on a mission to democratize wellness by making wellness ritual accessible in all urban cities by providing a “counterweight, a refuge from, a healing of the noise, rush, stress, and pressure. Whenever you need it – at everyone’s fingertips.”
“In the three years since our launch we’ve grown a world-class international team, can be found in five cities across Europe, and have matched hundreds of thousands of people with thousands of expert massage therapists. It’s a fast paced but nurturing atmosphere that manages to balance the fire and excitement of a start-up with the care and mindfulness expected from the wellness industry.”
Urban Massage also revealed that since its launch it has recorded more than 330,000 treatments, and built up a strong base of loyal customers, including 10,000 monthly active users and a 70% repeat rate across the board. Speaking about the investment round, Urban Massage CEO and Co-Founder, Jack Tang, stated:
“We’ve got to where we are because of our super invested community of staff, customers and the therapists who use our platform. We’re excited to work with Seedrs to provide a chance for them to be part of the journey in an increasingly meaningful way. I believe that we have developed the technology and expertise to offer a consistently high-quality at-home experience. Now it’s time to widen our offering into more of the services that help people feel strong and ready for anything – whether it’s a PT that gets you to that first amazing pull-up, or a facial that makes you feel clean and fresh after hours of tube commutes.”
Funds from the Seedrs campaign will be used to continue the growth and development of Urban Massage’s tech. The campaign is set to close later this month.
