SEPHORA ACCELERATE SUPPORTS FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS
The fourth edition of Sephora Accelerate supported
female entrepreneurs in successfully launching their
business in the beauty industry. Since 2016, the
program, which supports new businesses and start-
ups founded by women, has underpinned Sephora s
commitment to improving opportunities for women.
As every year, the finalists received mentoring from leading experts at Sephora and a week of coaching in
San Francisco. Sephora Accelerate was developed to
tackle two major issues firstly, female entrepreneurs don t enjoy the same access to funding, networks and
experience as their male counterparts; and secondly,
although the majority of consumers in the cosmetics
sector are women, very few companies in the industry
are actually run by women. Sephora Accelerate is one
of the three programs under Sephora Stands, through
which the Maison consolidates its efforts to boost
entrepreneurship, improve communities and benefit its employees.
