London firm Piton Capital has led on a multi-million pound investment into Booksy, the booking app for appointment-based beauty companies.

American-Polish startup Booksy raised $13.2m (c.£9.5m) in a funding round with Piton, early-stage venture capital firm OpenOcean, and investors including Sebastian Kulczyk and Zach Coelius.

The company will use the backing to drive global growth, recruit high profile talent and develop technologies that simplify the customer experience.

Measures will include the implementation of one-click booking, which uses machine learning and AI tech to offer each user the best dates with their favourite stylists based on their buying patterns.

Booksy was co-founded by business partners Stefan Batory and Konrad Howard, the minds behind Poland’s top taxi-hailing app, iTaxi.
