Rock Paper Coin (RPC), a Portland, OR-based SaaS startup providing a suite of digital contracts and invoicing tools for the wedding industry, announced that it secured $2.3 million in funding.
Elevate Capital led the round, with participation from HearstLab, Stormlight Holdings, and other investors.
RPC plans to use this new funding to scale up its operations to meet customer demand and gain increased market share in the wedding services market, which is expected to reach $414.2 billion by 2030.
"We're seeing significant demand from wedding planners, vendors, and couples who have all recognized the benefits of using RPC's software to help streamline the behind-the-scenes business workflows for the wedding industry by digitizing and automating contracts, invoices, and payments," said Elizabeth Sheils, co-founder, and CEO of RPC. "Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, the wedding industry is experiencing an unprecedented number of weddings because so many had to be postponed during the pandemic. More than 1,900 businesses have registered with RPC, and so we're experiencing rapid growth. We're extremely pleased to have the support of Elevate Capital, HearstLab, and more impressive investors on our team."
RPC's revenue increased by 250% from 2021 to 2022, and the company plans to continue to grow and scale its operations in 2023. To support the company's growth, RPC expects to hire additional employees in the months ahead and build on the team's expertise in the wedding industry.
