After a year of research and development, they were able to raise enough money to launch Omy Laboratoires. In 2019, their first commercial year, they did $500,000 in direct-to-consumer sales and innovative methods such as pop-up shops, where they made their personalized skin-care products on-site, in front of their customers. Since then, they have been continuing to thrive and are now expanding into the US market with the help of her TEC team, “I think the network is very powerful, because when you need something you have someone who did it before, by your side, who can help you not reproduce the same errors they may have made.”
When their team was having trouble receiving a shipment from the United States, due to not having an American address, a fellow member in her TEC CEO group, with an American business, helped her receive her ingredients with minimal delay. Other examples of how she has leveraged her TEC peer group include: hiring a CFO upon the recommendation of one of her TEC group members, developing strategies to collect and assess KPIs for different departments, and creating a vision for her company’s future.
