Shop Hers, a resale site geared for designer labels, has secured its Series A financing with the help of Bono.
The financing totals $3 million. It was led by Floodgate’s Mike Maples Jr. and Ann Miura-Ko, and includes investments by Bono and three other executives from Elevation Investors, plus David Tisch of The Box Group, Aldo Manzini and a few others, according to Shop Hers founder Jaclyn Shanfeld. Two seed round investors — Shana Fisher of High Line Venture Partners and a board partner at Andreessen Horowitz, and Mike Hirshland of Resolute VC — also contributed to the more recent financing.
