Portugal Ventures invests in UNUA
UNUA GLOBAL is the latest Portuguese start-up to be selected for investment by Portugal Ventures.
UNUA GLOBAL- “The leading global company of made-to-measure and customised garments for fashion retailers and brands” – is based on a mass personalisation business model consisting of an integrated Made-to-Measure offer for retailers and international brands, focusing mainly on men's apparel, namely suits, blazers, trousers, shirts, shoes, ties, glasses, amongst others. Its development will be supported by the experience and capacity of the traditional Portuguese clothing and footwear industry, which is among the best in the world, together with the most modern information technologies.
Its activity will be entirely driven by an innovative, integrated, multi-device and multi-channel information system (“MTM in a Box”), to support sales to the end consumer and to manage and monitor unit orders throughout the cycle, made available in the Cloud to its customers and suppliers.

The product’s technological development and improvement will be financed by this investment, which is the initial stepping stone, essential for the realisation of our vision. The importance of Portugal Ventures’ investment in this initial phase of the project is more than just the financial participation - the trust placed in our project gives the team an extra boost of motivation and responsibility, vital for success”, said Mário Gaspar, CEO of UNUA.
