Aimee Connolly joins the network

Exciting news! Aimee Connolly, Founder and CEO of Sculpted by Aimee, is officially an Endeavor Entrepreneur.

This week Endeavor the 97th International Selection Panel (ISP) took place in the beautiful city of Rome. This was the first time that Endeavor Ireland has brought a candidate entrepreneur to an in-person ISP since opening our office in late 2019, as the rest of our entrepreneurs attended their panels virtually.

Huge congratulations to Aimee, who knocked it out of the park during her three panels! Aimee is the 12th Endeavor entrepreneur in Ireland (across an outstanding 9 companies), and our first solo woman entrepreneur … the first of many! Sculpted by Aimee joins Cubic TelecomStrong RootsWayflyerGym+CoffeeLearnUponXOCEANKeelvar & Therapie Clinics in the portfolio.

Sculpted by Aimee is an award-winning cult make up and skincare brand designed for everyone, founded by leading makeup artist Aimee Connolly in 2016. Sculpted’s mission is empower everyone to love the way they look through minimal, easy to use products. The company’s multi-purpose products blur the line between makeup and skincare, are good for your skin, kind to the planet, and cruelty-free. Sculpted has received accolades from some of the industry’s most trusted awards and press, including the Sunday Times, Cosmo, Sheer Luxe, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and more.  Bootstrapped since its launch, Sculpted has grown to now offer over 100+ products across four countries.
