Hackathon: creating sustainable business models in cosmetics

In the context of the sixth edition of the Cosmetic 360° show launched by Cosmetic Valley, and building on the success of the previous edition, Agorize wished to renew its partnership with BrainsWatt to animate the hackathon targeting students. For this new edition, Brainswatt accompanied the students in the development of their project on the theme of sustainable cosmetics.

The sixth edition of the Cosmetic 360° show had sustainable cosmetics as its theme.

The fifth edition of the Sustainable Beauty Challenge hackathon made it possible to initiate the theme of sustainability in the cosmetics sector. For this sixth edition, which followed the same subject, we wanted to go further than the previous year, and offer support before and during the event.

The co-construction of a template for the development of projects and an interview guide, as well as the establishment of a team coaching session allowed us to support the preparatory phase of the hackathon. On D-Day, we hosted the event and set up a team of facilitators dedicated to support students, who helped them better understand the issues of the Sustainable Beauty Challenge.
