Episode description: By fascinating coincidence, we enter 2011 with an entrepreneurial tale again based on a storybook buyout for one Swiss franc. This time, a dynamic duo of sisterhood entrepreneurship, Irma and Carla Maria Khanjian, decided to take the plunge when a Geneva biology genius overextended himself financially while building his dream laboratory in the shadow of Mont Blanc. These Armenian immigrants to the land of chocolate and clocks, decided that they could do better, and convinced the shareholders to leave the failing enterprise in their care. Out of this impending disaster, they spun success: BeFutur started marketing La Peau, a revolutionary skin cream. Irma and Carla Maria hawked their goods everywhere, from Swiss pharmacies to the exclusive plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Today La Peau is a "must-try" for working girls and glamorous actresses alike. [26 minutes] www.LaPeauSkincare.com
