Eccentric, enterprising, obsessive, or even over-curious about the next big thing are just a few words to sum up Bryce Cleveland. At 36 years old, this man has stories of remarkability, how to stay on the high road in the midst of adversity, and knows how to keep the attention of a room.
I had the chance to visit his beautiful home in Arizona, or as some would call it, an adult playground. With exotic cats and frill dragons, hammocks suspended from the ceiling and even a zipline that scales the entire backyard, he has made his life full of play while also building the world’s largest aesthetics company for intuitive online training and top-quality supplies.
If you haven’t heard of it yet, SCALPA is the gateway for young entrepreneurs and esthetician’s to take the fast road into a career and start making money fast. Bryce is a 9th grade dropout that set off to create a new way of learning, away from the archaic college systems. He has done this by building a dedicated team to train in top-notch beauty procedures and high-quality products to pair with their service.
“If you’re winning, I am winning. It’s just that simple,” says Bryce. “Our support never ends. My job is to make you a rockstar in the beauty industry and by offering my services, we teach you so that you can build your empire.” It seems that he is more like the head of a new church than a trainer of beauty, and that he has built a culture of artists all around the world who are waiting for his next program to learn.
Bryce is over-the-top stylish, charismatic, and seems to make it all look easy. But this is far from his younger years when he was homeless and had to start all of this from scratch. “I knew I could change the face of the way people learned trades. I knew that school wasn’t for everyone and they needed a blueprint to direct success”, he says.
Bryce started off in Rochester, NY and has built a booming business all in the name of supporting people who find their purpose in this industry. “At the end of the day, it comes down to one question, ‘how can I change more lives?’”

Vurbl Makes Noise with Investor Lineup and $1 million in Pre-Seed Funding
A new audio streaming platform is coming to town. Vurbl is set to shake things up as the company goes head to head with other popular platforms like Apple and Spotify. The goal of the platform is to become the “YouTube of Audio.”
Vurbl is a creator-first, free streaming audio platform for all audio types, including user generated audio. Similar to YouTube, Vurbl allows content creators to upload, earn subscribers and monetize their work. Vurbl will provide listeners that are looking to connect with new voices and information with personalized playlists and stations across 40 categories.
Recently, Vurbl’s CEO and co-founder, Audra Everett Gold, completed its pre-seed round closing at $1.3 million. The round was led by AlphaEdison, a knowledge-driven VC firm that invests in early-stage companies. Vurbl also attracted other investors including Halogen Ventures, TEN13, Angelist and other businesses within the audio, advertisement and entertainment industries.
Nick Grouf, managing partner at AlphaEdison stated, “We believe Vurbl is opening up an entirely new audio market for listeners, creators and brands. This platform has the potential to change the way we consume audio on the internet and the timing is spot on. If anyone can pull this off this enormous opportunity, it’s the team at Vurbl.”
Gold launched Vurbl at the beginning of the year and once COVID-19 hit, the team opt-ed to work from home to stay safe and healthy. Gold and her team then doubled-down to develop Vurbl’s platform. Gold single handedly embarked on a journey to gain investor interest and secured funding during the pandemic mostly by way of Zoom calls.
The pre-seed funds are being used to develop and launch the Vurbl platform with over 25 million pieces of audio and podcasts. This will span across hundreds of categories and subcategories creating a sanctuary for content curators and listeners.
Gold is confident in the market demand for a streaming platform like Vurbl and stated, “Audio is scattered all over the internet in hard to find places, much of it costs money or is not findable, is not easy to playback, etc. We see millions of audio queries on Google and YouTube that reflect demand for audio of all types. The vast majority of these searches return subpar audio results or no audio results at all.”
Vurbl is uniquely positioned to win over audio aficionados with its promise of value added services and attractive revenue share program for creators.
Vurbl is set to launch its web-based platform experience in Q4 2020 with millions of discoverable audio, playlists and human-curated audio stations. The company also plans to announce additional updates including the launch of new mobile apps, a downloadable desktop app, and connected in-home devices for listeners to enjoy audio streams anytime and anywhere.
