Creating Skinlync is no easy feat. To help kick things off, Skinlync decided to participate in the NatWest Back Her Business crowdfunding campaign, which is a program that supports businesses with female co founders. What was supposed to be a small scale campaign with a target of £500 ended on a high note as the team managed to raise funds from 133 supporters. We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received and will endeavour to make Skinlync a reality.

Skinlync came in first place at the Venture Creation Weekend competition organised by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. For team leaders Yigit Akar and Atiqah Zaki, two Cambridge MBAs, this win solidified their goal of pursuing entrepreneurship in the United Kingdom post MBA.
