What is the Swiftarc Beauty Fund?

The Fund, LP is made up of an all-female council of five, with a mission “to be deliberate in backing underrepresented founders by fostering a diverse ecosystem and inspiring true industry change.” This focus also includes backing disruptive innovation in Female-Led Beauty and Wellness Brands. The fund aims to be socially conscious in solving the funding issue for female founders and diverse founders. 

The Fund is supported by a management team of industry veterans alongside an all-female Beauty Council comprising influential industry, investment, and beauty startup executives to provide a unique and relevant perspective in order to ensure female-led company success. Our mission is to be deliberate in backing underrepresented founders by fostering a diverse ecosystem and inspiring true industry change.

The fund will focus on sustainable beauty, technology-enabled, gender-neutral, and more inclusive brands. The company envisages that it will fund five to seven companies but hopes to increase it to ten. It has started its first venture, funding Alleyoop, a makeup and skincare brand for busy women. 

The fund also offers mentorship, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and training, helping the start-ups with relevant information for their business. An all-female beauty council is to help 100-200 female founders to help them achieve their dreams.
