App for tipping beauty professionals more than doubles funding in Series B


    The parent company of a digital tipping app for salon and spa professionals recently closed on new funding that will support its expansion.

    Fort Lauderdale-based DirectTips LLC on Wednesday announced $1.65 million in Series B financing for Tippy. That brings the app’s total funding to $3.15 million.

    Douglas Von Allmen, founder of Beauty Alliance, led the most recent round along with The Lehigh Valley Angel Investors’ Group, based in the Pittsburgh area. Allmen also led Tippy’s $1.5 million capital raise announced in May 2018.
