Almost 2 years ago, Sephora announced their 15% pledge, committing their team to being more inclusive in the brands’ product assortment. Fast forward to 2023, the notable makeup brand is championing diversity through its 8-year-old Accelerate Brand Incubation program. To be a part of this program allows the carefully selected entrepreneurs to be eligible to participate in a 6-month curriculum that provides opportunities to receive grants and places them in spaces to network and build investor collections.
