With the advent of cloud computing and the costs of founding a new business plummeting we’re in an exciting new startup cycle. And if you ask a startup CEO about the revenue model for her new company, the odds are that at some point you’ll hear the word “advertising.” But some startups don’t have the opportunity to create good,collaborative dialogs with actual advertisers—and that’s why L’Oreal’s embrace of exciting new technologies is important for brands and startups alike.In this morning’s session, you’ll hear from L’Oreal VP of Digital Strategy and Innovation Digital Rachel Weiss about how the company works with startups and why, how young companies can best pitch L’Oreal, and what really just doesn’t work. Rachel will be joined by a series of special startups guests, and the conversation will be moderated by industry thought leader Samantha Skey. Don’t miss this exciting discussion!
