Cosmoprof North America is collaborating with Founders Factory, the London-based digital accelerator and incubator, for its upcoming annual trade show, to be held July 29 through July 31 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. At the show, attendees and exhibitors will have the opportunity to learn about Founders Factory’s Beauty Tech Accelerator program, which has built and scaled more than 200 early stage companies across six sectors.

“Founders Factory provides one of the most tailored growth programs in the world and we have a mission to find and develop the most promising early stage startups through an open innovation culture. We are a talent magnet and we are encouraging any budding entrepreneur with a passion for beauty and technology to come and visit us,” said Laura Delgado, Business Development Lead at Founders Factory. “Our collaboration with Cosmoprof North America offers an unparalleled platform for us to meet with best in beauty and ensure optimal program visibility.”

At the show, a dedicated Founders Factory lounge will allow visitors to experience some of the latest beauty tech solutions from program graduates and meet directly with a Founders Factory representative. During designated hours, candidates interested in enrolling in the program can also meet with a Founders Factory representative one-on-one at the lounge. Select applicants will be chosen to participate in their six-month bespoke program and receive access to a global network of entrepreneurs, business and world leaders. From business plan development and fundraising to product engineering and marketing, an in-house team of 60 specialists are committed to helping program participants propel their brand.

“The collaboration with Founders Factory enables CPNA to continuously maintain its leadership for offering unmatched business building networking and learning opportunities,” said Daniela Ciocan, Marketing Director at CPNA. “We are thrilled for the opportunity to give our participants rare access into this revolutionary program.”

Those interested in learning more should also plan to attend a dedicated conference session, Corporate Accelerators: Fast Track to Market –What Every Startup Should Know, taking place Sunday, July 29, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Featuring three leading experts from Founders Factory, L’Oréal and Sampler, the panel seeks to deconstruct the ‘black box’ of corporate accelerators to highlight their metrics of success and what makes these collaborations effective for corporations and entrepreneurs alike.
