"This is substantial in helping my company grow our business and fill a need that Black women consumers are searching for when it comes to scalp health. The support and recognition from industry-leading brands like Aveeno® and Essence is powerful and so important in building a more inclusive industry, which I'm grateful to be a part of."

The Startup Accelerator program has also awarded finalist Ariane Turner, founder of Look Good, Live Well™, a $100,000 grant in addition to a mentorship session with both partners and a feature on ShopEssence. 

Look Good, Live Well’s mission is to normalize prestige skincare and to create products with the purpose of protecting and enhancing melanin to get rid of dark spots and provide glowing skin.
