As Fresha’s subscription-free salon software continues to gain momentum across the hair, beauty, spa and wellness industries, its global position has been affirmed with its debut entry on the prestigious Marketplace100 : 2022: a highly influential list that ranks the world’s largest consumer-facing marketplace start-ups and private companies.
Entering the list at 43, the highest ranking of any salon software company in the global hair and beauty market, Fresha’s placing confirms its position as the world’s leading, and fastest growing salon software.
Delivered by Californian Venture Capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, the Marketplace100 by a16z + Future ranking list is compiled using data based on marketplace activity scores for each company that includes GMV (Gross Merchandise Value), per Bloomberg Second Measure (for companies that Bloomberg Second Measure tracks), as well as Apptopia data for app performance and SimilarWeb data for website traffic.
“This ranking is a hugely important for Fresha,” says Fresha founder and CEO William Zeqiri. “It confirms that we’re making significant impact on the global stage, and this is driven by a transformation in terms of how our partners have embraced our technology and are using Fresha to manage their businesses. It’s also a reflection of how Fresha perfectly syncs with consumers and the way they now find the ideal salon, and book and pay for services and products online.”
Formerly known as Shedul, Fresha’s exponential growth is the result of a result of a global investment strategy that has positioned it as the world’s leading, and fastest growing salon software. Backed by New-York based equity firm General Atlantic – backers of tech giants including Facebook, Snapchat and Airbnb, along with separate investors including global beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan, Fresha has been valued at over $640 million. With over 60,000 partners and 200,000 hair, beauty and wellness professionals using Fresha, the platform has already processed 450 million appointments via its consumer-facing website and app.
