Building a Beauty Startup w/ Prose, Scentbird, Cocokind & Atolla

THIS IS A PAID EVENT. YOU MUST RSVP ON EVENTBRITE TO ATTEND: http://bit.ly/2lamPFL Startups in the beauty industry have been crushing e-commerce and direct-to-consumer sales in recent years. Beauty has been one of the most innovative and fastest growing industries in recent years; since 2012, there’s been a 70% growth in the number of venture-funded beauty startups. And a unicorn has even emerged - Glossier, which recently surpassed the $1 billion valuation. VCs and entrepreneurs are all taking note and looking to build the next beauty startup that will enamor consumers. However, building a product in the beauty space is challenging. Physical products can be a barrel of complicated logistics around manufacturing, packaging and shelf-life. Regulatory concerns can arise, especially for products in the naturals space. Perhaps most challenging is standing out. Customer acquisition is expensive; the beauty market is exciting, but it's crowded. So it can be a herculean effort for even the most truly differentiated products to get consumer's attention.

CONFIRM YOUR SPOT THROUGH EVENTBRITE RSVP.LINK BELOW https://bit.ly/32c8gSc Keys to making the most of Speed Networking: 1) Bring and distribute your business cards. Exchange cards with your partner at the beginning of each three-minute session—this can be a time saver. When you exchange cards, take time to read what is on your partner’s card. The other person will see this as interest on your part and, equally important, it will help you remember faces and names later on. 2) Develop an efficient way to introduce yourself. Consider developing an “elevator pitch”—a response you can give in any situation when someone asks you who you are or what you do. Think about how you want to describe yourself. You could talk about your current position, explain a project you’ve undertaken, or describe your goals for 2019.. 3) Contribute to an effective conversation. Make sure there is an even exchange of dialogue. Pose a question or make a point, and let the other person respond. Ask about the challenges and needs your partner faces in his or her organization or industry. This will give you an opportunity to establish common ground and, if appropriate, to offer ways in which you’ve solved similar problems. 4) Follow up with individuals with whom you made a connection. If you feel that there is the possibility of furthering a relationship with a contact, express that to the person during your session. The key to making the most of Speed Networking is to follow up with your contacts over time to develop credible business relationships.
