Foothill Ranch, California, February 3, 2016, Springboard Equity, Inc, today announced that ZALEA, an innovative start-up that addresses the needs of the growing cosmetic and aesthetic treatments industry by bringing web and mobile applications to the masses, has launched on the Springboard Equity fundraising platform.

ZALEA’s mission is to bring transparency to cosmetic treatments through social commerce, delivering engaging content that trumps what currently exists in the industry. Featuring expert commentary by doctors and social feedback from customers and industry enthusiasts, ZALEA brings greater clarity to the industry, while making it easier for consumers to navigate this otherwise complex and often confusing marketplace.

The company has already completed funding of its $2MM Series A investment round through a network of “power investors,” savvy industry experts who are confident that the company will be the leader in this space. The current round launching on Springboard is for ZALEA’s Series B raise of $600K, which is expected to sell out quickly.

“We’re very excited to support Lou Scafuri in the launch of ZALEA’s fundraise,” Lyle Martin, chief executive officer of Springboard Equity, said. “The industry experience of the executive team, investors and advisors is very promising for strong financial returns.”

Martin added, “We are featuring ZALEA in a live 30-minute Shark Tank-style pitch webinar on February 18th at Noon (PST), and expect a full audience to attend. This deal is slated to fund very quickly.”

ZALEA to become the trusted voice for the Global Cosmetics and Aesthetic Treatment Industry.

The cosmetics industry has not seen the type of transformation with social commerce in the way the restaurant industry has with Yelp or the home improvement industry with Houzz. As a result, ZALEA presents an untapped opportunity for both investors and people seeking cosmetic treatments.

“While most industries have already experienced a modern growth in transparency through social commerce and online services, the aesthetic and anti-aging industry remains virtually untapped,” Lou Scafuri, founder and chief executive officer of ZALEA, said. “We’re bringing together the brick and mortar world of cosmetic service providers into an online, social community that amplifies transparency, improves product and provider selection, and drives business through social-proof, community discussions and consumer incentives.”

Springboard selectively vets the companies it works with on its funding platform. ZALEA made the cut due to its strong potential, backed by existing funding success, a solid business plan and opportunity, and the powerful team of industry leaders that are running the company at all levels.

ZALEA has partnerships with such leading organizations as The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Concentrekgroup.com and Webadvanced.com.
