The 5th class of the Beauty Hub will join Cosmetic Valley's acceleration program in September 2022

Born in 2020 out of a collective drive to stimulate innovation in the perfumery-cosmetics sector, the Beauty Hub was created by Cosmetic Valley with the support of a consortium of eight industry heavyweights: Aircos, Aptar, Chanel, L'Oréal, LVMH, MS Beautilab, Nippon Shikizai, Yves Rocher. It offers innovative start-ups a sector-specific acceleration program with a comprehensive package of services covering all areas of innovation: discovery, experimentation, skills development, financing...

2 promotions each year, 20 start-ups accelerated since 2020

Based in Chartres, the Beauty Hub welcomes two groups of 5 to 10 start-ups each year. Each promotion is supported over a 6-month program including mentoring, thematic workshops (Strategy, Intellectual Property and Valorization, Formulation, Industrialization, Marketing, Communication, Regulatory, Financing, Distribution, International Development) and technical expertise.

At the end of the six-month period, the Beauty Hub gives start-ups access to a financing committee made up of private and public players, investment funds and its own Cosmetic Angels (more than 40 private investors) to help them raise initial funds.
Cosmetic Valley is currently inviting applications for the 5th Beauty Hub class, which will join the acceleration program in September.
Selected on the basis of an application and a presentation pitch, start-ups must propose a project that meets the various innovation challenges facing the perfumery and cosmetics industry: digitalization, naturalness, renewed distribution...

Applicants can come from all over France and abroad.
