Indie beauty brands are always looking for advice on how to grow their business wisely. And knowing when to consider outside investment is a big part of the growth equation. This year CEW has partnered with Cosmoprof North America to deliver a panel of retailer and brand experts to talk about how brands can identify the right time to look for outside investment, what to consider before making this decision and how to partner with retailers as they deal with this process.

Held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center during CPNA in Las Vegas on July 10 at 2 p.m., the panel will feature Lilli Gordon, Founder and CEO, First Aid Beauty, and Christina Zilber, Founder and CEO, Jouer Cosmetics, two brand executives who launched their companies in very different ways, one with funding from the get go, the other on the precipice of taking on an investor.

The event will also feature Kristen Conneen, Buyer, QVC, and Ashley Van Dyke, Naturals Buyer, Dermstore, to share some partnering techniques to help brands on their growth journey.
