Mayvenn – Disrupting a $9 Billion Industry - Business Mentorship Series
Diishan Imira, CEO
Diishan Imira had a vision to use technology to change the way hair salons sell to their customers. He created a technology platform enabling stylists to sell hair extensions to their customers without the need to carry and manage inventory. In eighteen months, over 30,000 stylists signed on to the platform, and revenues increased to millions of dollars. Mayvenn has raised $13 million of venture capital funding, including investors such as Serena Williams, Andreessen Horowitz and Trinity Ventures.
Come hear Diishan's story of how the company developed its strategy, obtained funding and disrupted a major market.
