Anisa International, founded by Anisa Telwar Kaicker, is one of 25 companies that are featured on Forbes list of America’s Best Small Companies of 2018.
Each year, in partnership with the Small Giants Community, Forbes presents a definitive list of America’s Best Small Companies—a celebration of 25 privately owned business that have chosen to be great instead of big. They are chosen based on factors including community involvement, commitment to staff and industry excellence.
Forbes writes, "Anisa Telwar Kaicker, who saw her mother build and then lose a $100 million import-export business, has been selling private-label brushes to cosmetics companies for more than 25 years, the last 20 of them profitably. During that time she has revolutionized the making of a product that had long been an afterthought—in part, by asking whether manufacturers, mostly run by men, actually knew what was the right brush for a particular type of cosmetic. She opened a factory in China in 2002."
