Tyra Banks invests in Social Shopping Startup

The Hunt announced another celebrity investor. Supermodel and TV host Tyra Banks invests in The Hunt with her investment firm Fierce Capital LLC. 

"The Hunt brings a fun and innovative approach to shopping and fashion," stated Tyra Banks, Supermodel and Founder of Fierce Capital, LLC. "What I love most about The Hunt is that women help other women find their perfect outfit H2T [head-to-toe]. I am excited to be part of this new approach to collective retail and styling."

Tyra Banks joins the ranks of The Hunt's investors including, actor and investor Ashton Kutcher and partner Guy Oseary, Co-founders of AGR-ade Investments, Rohan Oza, former Chief Marketing Officer of Coca-Cola Company's still coke brands and Founder of Idea Merchants Capital, RedOne, the Grammy winning producer behind Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, Keli Lee, EVP of Casting for ABC Entertainment Group and Anjula Acharia-Bath, CEO of A-Series Entertainment. 

The Hunt has now one million monthly unique visitors and hundreds of thousands of active members that have started over 150,000 hunts and found over 250,000 products for each other.

For The Hunt it clearly makes sense to get celebrity investors as they help driving their fans to the service.
