Cosmoprof North America has expanded its award-winning cosmetics and beauty exhibition with a special twist for beauty brands looking to take their business to the next level. This year’s event, which takes place July 29-31, will now feature a new program, BEAUTY PITCH ANGELS 2018, to connect brands with private equity and venture capitalists interested in investing money in beauty innovations.

The new program is open to qualified Professional Beauty Association members, Cosmoprof exhibitors and existing beauty companies with at least one original product and $500k in revenue. In what seems like beauty-focused version of Shark Tank, select applicants will be invited to deliver a live 15-minute closed-door pitch, inclusive of their business and distribution models, sales and market opportunities and intended use of funds.

“CPNA has a long and steady reputation for providing truly one-of-a-kind programs that propel brands forward and is unique in its ability to attract major private equity groups,” said Daniela Ciocan, Cosmoprof marketing director. “Being able to offer our attendees the opportunity be seen by a wide group of qualified investors while simultaneously gaining further visibility and networking opportunity at the largest B2B beauty event is unparalleled. For the investors, it’s equally thrilling since they too are given the rare chance to see so many viable business investment opportunities in one event.”

The BEAUTY PITCH ANGELS event takes place Sunday, July 29 at NOON. It will kick-off with a roundtable discussion hosted by FORBES Magazine followed up by investment pitches, from 1pm – 5pm.

Applications for a chance to be seen by investors are now open through June. Click here for more information or to apply.
