NEW YORK — Joor, the online wholesale fashion marketplace, said Thursday it raised $15 million in Series B funding.
The round was led by Canaan Partners, with contributions from Advance Publications, parent company of Condé Nast and its Fairchild Fashion Media division, as well as existing investors Battery Ventures, Forerunner Partners and Lerer Ventures. Through its Web site at jooraccess.com, an iPad app and a soon-to-be-launched iPhone app, Joor’s goal is to streamline — and digitize — the buying process, enabling a seamless connection between brand and retailer.
