Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
In the brief two months since the official launch of Los Angeles based web start-up, BetterYOU.com, the growth has been impressive. Now, with the company’s acceptance into the prestigious StartEngine (http://www.startengine.com) rapid accelerator program for an elite group of highly screened entrepreneurs, they show no signs of slowing down.
BetterYOU.com launched on February 4th, as the first ever website dedicated to connecting independent fitness, beauty and wellness providers directly with paying consumers. The site offers providers a better way to manage and their business through payment processing, automated scheduling and appointment reminder, branding, and a robust CRM system. It also gives providers a direct outlet to market their business to new customers, and conversely, gives consumers a direct place to find them – something that is revolutionizing the way independent professionals build clientele and earn income.
Founder Hope Horner raised a seed round of funding for the company back in November of 2011, which served as the initial capital investment to get the website off the ground. Now with their acceptance into the StartEngine program as of April 2nd, 2012 they have received an additional funds from the program to continue to lay the groundwork for BetterYOU.com’s success.
Additionally, inclusion in the StartEngine accelerator program means BetterYOU.com will be paired with world-class mentors to guide them in building the brand and expose them to multiple networking and investment opportunities for the duration of the 90 day program.
In addition to the expert knowledge being gained through the mentors of the StartEngine program, BetterYOU.com has an impressive advisory board of proven-successful tech entrepreneurs in place and is positioned to take their company to the next level and expand into other markets. Tech entrepreneurs Ophir Tanz, CEO of GumGum, who was recently featured on the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine, and Aaron Hirschborn, founder of Dog Vacay (http://www.dogvacay.com) serve as members of the BetterYOU.com advisory board, adding their expertise and experience in the tech world to the company.
