“The market for healthy plant-based products is growing and we see this directly on store shelves. Unison already has a solid customer base, a portfolio of nutrient-dense products that are very loved by consumers. With this funding we will accelerate sales and significantly expand our product offering. We are happy to be the first local producer to offer this highly affordable investment tool through SeedBlink,”Tudor Iacob, CEO and Co-founder of Unison, comments.
- So far, Unison managed to secure €133,000 for its pre-seed funding round. Mavers Ventures acted as the lead investor. It is a Bucharest-based venture capital investment firm, which just recently participated in the seed funding for inki.tech.
- A plethora of unnamed angels also joined the round. The total financial goal of the pre-seed round is €225,000. The SeedBlink campaign is open to anyone who wants to back Unison with the minimum ticket being €500.
