AN UNMET NEED
Founded by celebrity esthetician, Jillian Wright, and entrepreneur, Nader Naeymi-Rad, IBE was established to help the fast-growing category of indie brands connect to Buyers, Press, Consumers and Investors. Unsatisfied with the options available, Jillian and Nader formed IBE to provide a solution specific to market-ready indie brands.
A PARTNER FOR GROWTH
IBE debuted in New York City in August of 2015 and has since expanded to four strategic markets in N. America and Europe: New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and London. Today IBE offers Buyers, Press, Investors and Shoppers an opportunity to discover and transact with the largest collection of independent beauty brands in the world.
A SCALABLE PLATFORM
The IBE platform has expanded to include Beauty Independent, the definitive content destination for beauty entrepreneurs, BeautyX Summit series focused on entrepreneurial learning and networking, Retail Partnerships, such as ShopTheExpo, offering retailers a program to seek, secure and sell differentiated indie beauty collections, and Uplink Live, a new destination connecting beauty entrepreneurs with qualified solution providers who specialize in serving emerging brands.
