IVALO is a marketplace for ethical and emerging fashion with 348 brands from 17 countries. IVALO crowdfunding campaign began on the 17th of December 2018 and ends on the 28th of February 2019. The purpose of the funding is to grow IVALO to be an internationally recognized marketplace.

*Sales have almost doubled quarterly*

*IVALO has already many Finland's first-row business people onboard and for example, Peter Vesterbacka and Jaakko Kankaanpää are both investors and advisors of IVALO.*

*Several very well known Finnish influencers have already invested in IVALO. The influencers include Saimi Hoyer, Stella Harasek, Tuija Pehkonen, Jenni Rotonen, Janni Hussi, Eevi Teittinen, Ida Hanhiniemi sekä Henriikka Simojoki.*

"Right now the fashion world needs just the kind of courage IVALO has. They have strongly started to grow the company internationally. The problem for the Finnish fashion people has often been fear of failure. This kind of bravery is worth supporting especially when the concept is clear, well selling and supports both ethical and societal values."
