How conscious beauty brands can win investors
Our Director of Projects, Fiona Glen, hosted a panel at this year's Clean Beauty in London conference covering the different routes to raising finance and tips on how to succeed with investors.
One of the most common reasons that clean beauty brands fail is lack of capital.
The panel discussed the options available for beauty brands in raising capital, how to communicate your brand to potential investors and advice from both brand and investor perspectives on how best to navigate the fundraising arena.
Fiona was joined by Nnenna O. seasoned ex-Rothschild M&A banker (ACA Qualified) with 20 years of investment banking and strategic financial advisory experience and Jasmine Wicks-Stephens founder of Known. A Community and Faace who has raised significant funds via SFC Capital as joint winner of The Beauty Accelerator™ 2020, angel investors and via crowdfunding on Seedrs.
"Clean Beauty in London was a fantastic experience for The Red Tree. It was great to meet both new and existing contacts, discover innovative suppliers and service providers and be inspired by the stellar line up of industry specialists in the talks and panel discussions."
