UPDATE: Congrats to the Techturized Team! They’ve raised over $25,000 to launch Madame You, an online community where women can share their hair experiences and receive personalized recommendations for hairstyles and products. Stay connected with the Techturized founders on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Madame You.com.
The Techturized team is on a mission to revolutionize the hair care industry through science and technology. Along the way, they’ve completed the rigorous “startup engineering” program at Flashpoint, won the 2013 Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) Business Launch Competition and been featured in Black Enterprise as a Tech Startup of the Week.
Techturized is a hair technology company that creates innovative solutions for women of color. The company was founded by four female engineers (and Georgia Tech grads): Candace Mitchell, Chanel Martin, Joy Buolamwini, and Jess Watson. The co-founders are young, black and fabulous and they’re combining their tech skills, business know-how and beauty savvy to launch Madame You, an online community where women can share their hair experiences and receive personalized recommendations for hairstyles and products.
Madame You has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund its research and development. They need your help to raise $25,000 to provide “1 million black women with personalized recommendations for hairstyles and products.”
