Mischo Beauty Launches Crowdfunding Campaign via iFundWomen

September 12, 2018 | 3:10 PM

Eco-conscious cosmetics brand Mischo Beauty has launched a new crowdfunding campaign, “#weloveMischo,” in efforts to increase access to capital for female-led businesses.

The 30-day campaign, ending on Sept. 30, aims to raise $50,000 to support the research, development, and production of a complete, non-toxic nailcare system entitled, “Repair, Polish, Protect, Remove, Repeat." Expanding on the brand’s reach in the clean beauty segment, the new products — which includes a non-toxic Gel Finish Top Coat — introduce healthier alternatives to the most sought-after nail trends of today.

Mischo Beauty’s founder Kitiya Mischo King created the campaign via iFundWomen after a Forbes report revealed that black women only receive about 0.2% of venture capital investments, with women overall receiving 2.5%.

“Many hurdles have challenged me to think differently — more creatively — about the route and methods necessary to achieve my goals and uphold my vision," King states.
