Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso has raised $1.2 million for her new company, Girlboss Media.
The seed round was led by San Francisco venture capital firm Slow Ventures, with participation from Playa Vista’s Bam Ventures, Human Ventures, and other investors.
Amoruso launched Girlboss in March, less than a year after her first high-profile business, Nasty Gal, filed for bankruptcy. The new company includes an editorial website, Girlboss.com, which targets young women with content topics ranging from personal finance to beauty and fitness. Amoruso’s Girlboss Radio is expected to relaunch under the new Girlboss banner.

“We want Girlboss Media to be a resource, both online and offline, where women can feel supported to chase dreams both big and small in a shame-free environment,” Amoruso said in a statement.
