Born from the idea of José Neves, PlatformE was originally a platform dubbed MySwear which helped customize sneakers for his brand Swear. After the success of MySwear, we built the best technological stack for 3D product composition and customization, and supply chain technology to make on-demand fashion possible.
After understanding that the set of tools and software would be useful for the industry as a whole, we created Ripe Productions, and started partnering with brands, factories, and retailers beginning in 2016.
Backed by TLF Ventures, Amorim, and Natalie Massenet, we launched a B2B tech platform to serve the fashion industry and later changed the name to PlatformE.
Starting in 2017 and entering 2018, PlatformE joined the two major luxury groups LVMH and Kering, serving more than 20 brands, like Hermès, Dior, Gucci, Fendi and Farfetch.
We launched DDIGITT, a digital agency specializing in 3D Digital Product Creation (3DPC) and animation.
We launched SKINVADERS, a next-generation platform for in-game branded skins and in-game digital assets at scale that is connecting brands with the metaverse.
PlatformE bets in extending its capacity to the supply chain. The company acquires Springkode to accelerate the connection between brands and digital-ready manufacturers and spearhead Industry 5.0. We've built a global network of digitally savvy factories, ready to produce on-demand in record time.
We have partnered with Houspring to launch the factory of the future in the North of Portugal.PlatformE acquires Catalyst AI to strengthen its artificial intelligence capabilities and add machine learning tools for optimizing fashion supply chain processes to its platform.
PlatformE launches a new brand and a new website.
