Embracing the Setbacks: A D2C Skincare Founder's Recipe for Success

Behind the Scenes with Ulli Haslacher

Pour Moi's Ulli Haslacher talks about starting her own company, why it takes a village and shares lessons from her Dad.

I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women, and not only for the work they do but their stories behind the scenes. With Brand Insider: BTS, I get to pull back the curtain on some of the most influential women marketers as they talk about their path to success: the twists and turns, obstacles, inspirations and the valuable lessons learned along the way.

“I didn't find any support in the industry, everybody felt that this was a terrible idea to bring to the market.” So Ulli Haslacher decided to do it herself and created her own “climate-smart” skincare line, Pour Moi Skincare. She says it took a lot of collaboration, and having attended a number of MediaPost summits, the Founder & CEO even credits what she learned at those events for helping her company grow to where it is today. In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, Ulli talks with Me about always being open to learning new things, why she embraces the setbacks and why her childhood memories make what’s happening in Ukraine even more heartbreaking for her. You can watch the video of the entire conversation here.
