In 2017, the company raised an $8M Series A round for its international expansion, mainly in the United States. Today, LumApps has offices in Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, Austin, Tokyo and Lyon. In 2019, a $24M Series B was raised.

To fuel its further growth, LumApp now raised a $70M Series C funding round. The Series C is led by Goldman Sachs, another major investor is Famille C, the private investment firm of the French Courtin-Clarins family. The net worth of the Courtin-Clarins family is estimated to be around $2BN. Through establishing the skincare brand “Clarins” the family built up a major global consumer goods company. In 2008, the family took the company private by a $3.6BN offer. Famille C, the Courtin-Clarins family office, is rather secretive with only a few known investments.
