Not Nyakio Grieco. She decided one win wasn't enough, and went on two build two more incredible companies.
Her first biz that sold to Unilever is Nyakio Beauty, but after the exit she raised $12M to launch thirteen lune, an e-commerce destination designed to inspire the discovery of beauty brands created by Black and Brown founders that resonate with people of all colors. This became the inspiration for a third business, Relevent. This woman knows her stuff!
Listen to the interview to learns what Nyakio knows about starting and scaling a business, the future of beauty, how to pick investors, and the mistakes she made in her first business—but that you can avoid.
