Building on the success of its inaugural year, Ulta Beauty, the nation’s largest beauty retailer, has revealed the MUSE Accelerator cohort of 2023. Eight early-stage BIPOC beauty brands will embark on a 10-week journey featuring a robust curriculum, mentorship, and funding to fuel growth and prepare for retail distribution.
The MUSE Accelerator returns to Magnify, Uplift, Support, and Empower a new cohort of founders, allowing them to further build their beauty brand by learning from and engaging with industry experts. In addition, these founders will have access to resources to learn how to propel growth and help establish a foundation for long-term success.
Fostering a community of passionate, BIPOC founders with a shared experience will help build a foundation and support network anchored in inclusivity that can help drive equitable and sustainable change.
“We’re excited to welcome our 2023 MUSE Accelerator participants to the Ulta Beauty family,” said Monica Arnaudo, Chief Merchandising Officer, Ulta Beauty. “As retail leaders and brand builders, we have a responsibility to create space and opportunities for all brands, particularly those who have been underrepresented to thrive in our industry and nurture an inclusive assortment that reflects the beautifully diverse community we serve. This year’s participants are a shining example of the bright future of beauty, and we can’t wait for the world to meet them.”
