Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand, Goop, raised millions in venture capital.
Goop is frequently mocked online for selling obscenely expensive knickknacks, but Paltrow seems to have convinced investors that it’s a promising business. She’s raised $20 million in venture capital funding since she began Goop as simply a personal newsletter in 2008, according to CNBC.
It’s not clear, though, if Goop is profitable yet. In 2014, leaked documents seemed to show that the company was $1.2 million in debt. But it’s e-commerce business seems to be growing steadily, according to Racked.
