ClearAngel funds Knude Society, a female-led sexual wellness company | New
TORONTO, November 11, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Clearco, the world’s largest e-commerce investor and the company that is revolutionizing the way founders grow their businesses, today announced that its ClearAngel the program invests $ 10,000 in Knude Company, a female-run sexual wellness company that creates innovative, long-lasting sex toys that help build a lasting and fulfilling relationship with your body. The ClearAngel program provides start-up founders with access to equity capital, data-driven advice and Clearco’s extensive network of applications, agencies and investors.
Founded by CEO Emma Brown, Knude Society was created to change the way sexual wellness products were viewed in the UK, while maintaining aesthetics and durability. Brown was tired of the way adult novelty companies sold their products to women in the UK and set out to create a sexual wellness brand that offers honesty, inclusiveness and pleasure. Knude Society now ships to 8 countries around the world and launched a second flagship toy, Lennon, in the fall. Its first US-based retailer became available in September 2021.
“We are proud to fund the Knude Society in its mission to help everyone enjoy their bodies in a way that is right for them,” said André D’Souza, CEO and Co-Founder, Clearco. “This latest investment reflects ClearAngel’s commitment to democratizing capital for women-owned brands.”
ClearAngel is one of the few flexible, equity-free capital options for start-up founders who don’t have the network to raise an investor round or join proprietary accelerators. The program has already funded more than 400 companies since its February 2021 launch.
“Knude Society was created out of dedication and determination, and I am delighted that ClearAngel saw the potential of the brand,” said Emma Brown, CEO, Knude Society. “With the support of ClearAngel, we can continue to grow and create products that can help everyone truly experience the wonders their bodies have to offer.”
In addition to $ 10,000 of flexible capital, Knude Society will also have access to a network of over 500 investors, growth teams, agencies, applications, lawyers and buyers; and data-driven advice designed to help scale and reach new revenue milestones.
