These shifting trends have put this company in god favor with investors.

The funding was led by PWP Growth Equity, which is a middle market private equity group of Perella Weinberg Partners. Also, there was additional help from new investor Sandbridge Capital and existing investor Great Hill Partners. Another investor, Chip Baird, the co-founder and partner if PWP Growth Equity, also became a member of The RealReal’s board of directors. Online resale will continue to thrive, its expected worth to be about $41 billion by 2022. Millennials frequently shop online, looking for bargains, reusing, and recycling for items.

The RealReal currently has a brick-and-mortar shop in Soho and LA, but wants to expand on that to reach out to more potential consumers, such as opening a shop in Manhattan. The founder of The RealReal, Julie Wainwright, plans to release more jewelry and watch appraisal centers all over the nation.
