Rate and comment
Roundtable — episode 44

The beauty industry has become a magnet for all manner of investors—from angels to family offices, venture funds, private equity firms and now Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs). Join Nader Naeymi-Rad as he has a one-on-one discussion with Michel Brousset, founder and CEO of Waldencast, the latest beauty SPAC to launch.  Brousset, a 25 year industry veteran, is also CEO of Waldencast Ventures, which has made a dozen investments in small indie brands, such as Kjaer Weis and Sallve, since its inception in 2019. Naeymi-Rad and Brousset will dissect the current beauty investment environment, and cover how Waldencast Acquisitions plans to deploy its war chest of more than $600M.
