Supporting five Kiwi female-founded businesses to grow



The shared business philosophy of empowering and celebrating women in business, has brought Dermalogica and Saben together in partnership to help emerging female-founded Kiwi businesses.


Introducing Dermalogica and Saben’s EmpowHER scholarship for business acceleration, powered by The Icehouse.


Launching on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2023, submissions will open for emerging female-founded businesses to apply via for four grants collectively valued at $20,000, plus money-can’t-buy mentoring within Dermalogica NZ and Saben head offices.


“We are delighted to partner with our friends at Saben, with the support of The Icehouse to help three up-and-coming New Zealand women in business scale their businesses further,” says Natasha Bourke, CEO of Two Hundred Door’s (NZ distributors of Dermalogica and Founder of Skintopia).


“With our companies purpose so closely aligned, Saben (and The Icehouse) felt like the perfect partners to take this idea and turn it into reality – something we’ve been working together on over the last year.”


The recipient of the EmpowHER $20,000+ scholarship will be announced on April 24 2023, and will receive a $5K financial cash boost; a tailored mentoring course at Saben & Dermalogica’s head office; a The Icehouse ‘Taking Your Business Forward’ 3-month course plus Dermalogica skin care and a Saben hand bag


Four runners up will receive a $2,500 valued grant each, and either The Icehouses’ Financial Skills or Sales Skills workshops (valued at $2,007 each) plus Dermalogica and Saben products to the value of $500.


The overall grant winner will receive 12 one-hour monthly mentoring sessions with both Dermalogica and Saben CEOs, Natasha Bourke and Roanne Jacobson, as well as their team of experts via a tailored mentoring course.  This money can’t buy opportunity allows the entrepreneur to tap into different aspects of each business’s expertise specific to their business needs.


Roanne adds, “Not everyone is given the same opportunities in life, and this grant might be a game-changer for someone with the drive and passion to succeed, giving them the right tools and financial boost to take their business to the next level.”
