Details

From momentous transactions such as Estée Lauder’s acquisition of Too Faced, to a spell of minority investments in early-stage companies such as L Catterton’s investments in Kopari Beauty, VMG’s investment in Drunk Elephant and Main Post Partners’ investment in Milk Makeup, M&A activity in the beauty industry is thriving. At our inaugural Beauty & Money Summit in New York last year, Independent Beauty Brands, Investors and Strategic Buyers requested over 1000 one-to-one meetings to find their perfect match. We’re incredibly excited to bring this exclusive one-day beauty business partnering event to London.
