Investment in Thread by Beringea
HMT LLP undertook due diligence for Beringea LLP on their investment in UK men personal styling service provider Thread Ltd.
Founded in 2012 by entrepreneurs Kieran O’Neill, Ben Phillips and Ben Kucsan, Thread is a free online personal styling service, offering tailored advice to men on how to dress. Thanks to their unique combination of personal stylists and algorithms, Thread is able to sort millions of items to create the best outfits for each one of their clients, who then can buy them through the website.
In August 2015, Thread had already received $8 million investment from Balderton Capital and a number of angel investors. Beringea joins the existing investors on this £4 million funding round.
The UK-based company has over 325,000 clients and the investment will be used to continue the business’ growth and expand their team in London.
