JUMP CONCLUSION

Best Beauty Funder Fit. The score is lower than some of the other ventures only because of the way it is measured. The number of beauty investments and the fact that Loreal is te biggest beauty company on the planet, the score doesn’t do justice and could easily have been a perfect 10. Also, there is no information on the exits as that doesn’t seem to be Loreal’s strategy, which also reduces the score a bit.

 

A must in your list of target ventures. And, if you are an aspirational beauty brand that understands your category’s emotional drivers unlike any other brand, then L’Oreal BOLD Ventures should be your #1.
