Meet our panel
Kameese launched Nylah’s Naturals in 2018. She desired to create a range of hair products for her daughter, making her hair care an enjoyable experience and sensitive enough to care for her eczema-prone skin. Appearing on Dragons Den April 2021, Kam secured investment with Sara Davis.
Since launching her proof-of-concept, Kameese has established her brand as a leader in the UK’s black hair, and beauty market with contracts with Superdrug secured and another large retailer pending.
Kiemu is co-Founder and CEO of My Way Beauty, currently in stealth mode. It is a one-stop beauty marketplace, powered by unbiased reviews, and co-owned with beauty content creators.
Kiemu raised over £1.5 million of venture capital to evolve her custom makeup business – Beautonomy, towards her vision of a fairer beauty industry. She is motivated by the role of Beauty in empowering people to feel their best, and the potential it has to help women achieve economic autonomy.
Prior to running beauty start-ups, Kiemu was a doctor for eight years, specialising in anesthesia.
Roshanne is the Founder of superfood skincare brand The Glowcery. Launched in March 2020 and taking inspiration from her plant-based lifestyle, The Glowcery uses cold-pressed, fruit and veg oils in their formulas to make nutrient-rich skinfood that delivers vital vitamins and minerals deep into the skin.
The brand was awarded Best Facial Oil of 2020 by Women’s Health Beauty Award for their best-selling serum Clean Greens.
