BeautyMatter launched the NEXT Summit: The Future of Beauty to bring together the thinkers, makers, and doers in our community whose work raises the bar and defines the future of beauty.
Having been in the shoes of start-up beauty founders, we understand bootstrapping and limited budgets. When we decided to take BeautyMatter offline for our first summit, integral to our planning was finding a way to make the event accessible to businesses of all sizes in the beauty ecosystem.
How could we create an event focused on the future of the beauty industry when the event might be out of reach to the future leaders of the beauty industry? With this goal in mind, we reached out to Brandon Ford, Chief Accelerator Director, Lubrizol Life Science, and shared our vision without missing a beat they were on board, ”BeautyMatter is one of the strongest informational authorities in our industry. It made sense to partner with them on the grant program to support new brands."
Ford believes, "One of the hardest parts of developing a brand today is access…especially for brands in the BIPOC community. Access to investors, retailers and even influencers is increasingly difficult. Our hope is that we can start to balance that inequity and support underrepresented brands to support the access they deserve,"
Lubrizol Life Science is underwriting the expense of bringing eight beauty entrepreneurs to join us at the NEXT Summit in Los Angeles on September 15, 2022.
The Details: NEXT Summit Grants will be made available to a limited number of applicants on a rolling basis.
The Application: It should take no more than 20 minutes. Apply here.
The Deadline: August 15, 2022, at 11:59pm PST.
