The Canadian Cosmetic Cluster has developed a new Cosmetic Acceleration Program. The Cluster has only one goal and that is to increase your knowledge to help you accelerate your business for the Canadian Cosmetic Market. The Canadian Cosmetic Cluster will provide you with knowledge on cosmetic business, cosmetic formulation, ingredient knowledge and marketing. This is not your standard business course.
This accelerated program was developed for individuals looking to fast-track their business brand but who lack knowledge and experience in the fast-paced cosmetic industry. We will work with you to provide you with an essential plan to succeed. The course work is 10 hours a week for live one on one virtual lectures and 10 hours of course- work/reading per week. The program is 4 weeks long and completely virtual at this time. We work with the participant to customize the program to their needs and tailored to their schedule. The goal of the program is to develop a personalized business plan and plan of action for market readiness.
