Bookr, a Kuwaiti cloud-based SaaS-enabled marketplace facilitating salon, spa, grooming, and stylist bookings, has wrapped up an undisclosed bridge round investment from Plus VC, a venture capital firm focusing on early-stage tech and tech-enabled startups in the MENA region.[1]

With its bilingual English and Arabic SaaS software, Bookr offers a comprehensive digital solution catering to both salon proprietors and their clientele. Its array of features encompasses digitizing various operational aspects, from customer acquisition and appointment scheduling to online payment facilitation and retail management.

The infusion of capital will bolster Bookr's proprietary capabilities, ramp up marketing endeavors, enrich user experience, expand the team, and broaden its presence across the GCC region.

Bookr already forged partnerships with over 500 entities and facilitated more than 168,000 scheduled appointments worth $6.5 million across 10 GCC cities. Brands in Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia have integrated Bookr into their SMS services and point-of-sale systems.

In 2018, Bookr was founded by Zaina Al Bader and soft-launched in Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. Two years later, the startup opened its online beauty store.
