HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Valedor Partners, a private investment firm, today announced its lead role in Hanni’s growth financing round. Hanni has developed a weighted (all metal) razor to provide a closer, cleaner, eco-friendly shave. The team has also developed a shaving cream product that eliminates the need for women to use water, providing an alternative to the use of showers or bathtubs while shaving.
Hanni has been featured in The Financial Times’ How to Spend It and Vogue, and its CEO Leslie Tessler on the Stairway to CEO Podcast.
Valedor Partner Barbara Palmquist said, “We are excited to partner with the Hanni team to support the outstanding growth they have already achieved in less than a year since their launch. Hanni has a beautifully designed product whose premium quality is immediately obvious, and Leslie and her team have deep experience in the beauty space. On top of that they are a joy to be around. We can’t wait to see what they accomplish and are thrilled to join their journey.”

I'm lucky to have found smart and seasoned investment partners who add incredible strategic value and will undoubtedly help us scale quickly and efficiently.
