Hair Extension Brand Nourie Closed a $2.5 Million Seed Round, a Difficult Feat for Black Female Founders
In September, Aja Labs completed a $2.5 million Seed round led by Impact America Fund, Better Ventures, and SOSV’s accelerator IndieBio. This feat makes Osahon Ojeaga one of the first Black women to ever raise more than $1 million in venture capital. Exbo works with Osahon to provide strategic spend analyses and advice on investor relations.
Aja is a startup that makes plant-based braiding hair extensions that deliver nutrients to the scalp. The products are expected to launch in November. When asked about her product, Ojeaga said, “When describing the value of our product compared to the value of what exists in the market today, you can’t beat it.”
