Phorest – a Dublin-based spa and salon software provider – has launched the Phorest Growth Fund, a new initiative that will provide funding to Phorest clients looking to grow their businesses.
The company has committed €100,000 (£83,000) to the initiative to help spa and salon owners to expand their operations.
Funding will be awarded on a case-by-case basis by an independent panel of industry experts including Paolo Braguzzi, former CEO of Davines Group; Janna Ronert, founder of Image Skincare; David Barnett, hairdresser and business coach; and public speaker and author Susan Routledge.
The fund was launched by Phorest CEO Ronan Perceval at The Brave New World Gala Dinners. Hosted in Dublin and London at the end of March, these events celebrated the “courage and camaraderie” of the hair and beauty industry.
