Pulp Riot

Podcast with 2017 Spotlight Finalist - David Thurston, Co-Founder, Pulp Riot

Pulp Riot were one of 12 finalists in the 2017 Beauty & Money NY Brand Spotlight and went on to be sold to Beauty giants L'Oreal in a deal represented by Triangle Capital. In this podcast David speaks to Richard Kestenbaum, co-founder of Triangle Capital on his experiences growing his brand and going on to sell to L'Oreal. 

Why Attend

The No.1 Meeting Place For Beauty Business Partnering

From momentous transactions such as the The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. 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.

The more acquisitions a company makes, the better each transaction performs, according to a recent market report by A.T. Kearney. With frequent buyers growing 63% more enterprise value over a six-year period than infrequent buyers of a comparable size, it is more important than ever to act quickly and secure well-priced targets in a competitive landscape.

Beauty & Money is an exclusive one-day event, connecting industry executives from strategic buyers, financial buyers and independent beauty brands.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
