Office Hours: I'm the Co-Founder of Mented Cosmetics, a Harvard Business School grad, and former Manager at DeloitteFeatured
Hi everyone!I’m KJ Miller, CEO & Co-Founder of Mented Cosmetics – a premium beauty brand celebrating women of all hues. Mented Cosmetics has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, and Essence Magazine. As CEO, I have launched four product lines and raised $4M in funding.When my cofounder and I first started, we both had full time jobs, so Mented Cosmetics began as a side project that we worked on on weekends. We bought all our ingredients and made our original collection of nude lipsticks ourselves from scratch! Before launching my company, I worked as a Manager in Deloitte’s retail practice, and before that I spent several years as an apparel and jewelry buyer.I’m a Harvard Business School grad, and have an undergrad degree in Philosophy from Harvard as well.I’m passionate about supporting women and minorities who are interested in entrepreneurship and startups and I’m excited to answer your questions about navigating the sometimes murky waters of building a startup!
