- The company, through its Mango StartUp Studio accelerator, will finance the on-demand salary platform project.
- For its part, Payflow will learn about the operation of a large company, be able to scale up its business model and will receive advice from Mango professionals, among other benefits.
- This is the second investment of Mango StartUp Studio, after investing in the Recovo start-up, which specialises in the resale of textile waste, last October.
Mango, one of Europe’s leading fashion groups, is strengthening its innovative spirit and investing in Payflow, the on-demand and flexible remuneration salary start-up, which offers it users flexibility in the payment of their salary, the possibility to save using automated virtual money boxes and to learn about finance through interactive classes on its app.
The investment, which will be channelled through its Mango StartUp Studio accelerator, involves offering the company financial support through a convertible participation loan and represents the entry of Payflow into an acceleration programme, through which the entrepreneurs will learn about the Mango operation at first-hand, be able to scale up their business model, as well as receiving consultancy and mentoring sessions from company professionals in areas such as people management or market knowledge.
Payflow was founded in Spain in 2020 and now also operates in Colombia, Peru and Portugal. It has over 500 customers worldwide and around 300,000 users on its platform. Through the acceleration process of the Mango StartUp Studio, the entrepreneurs will also be able to gain learning experiences from their value proposal, thanks to a concept trial implemented in one of the territories in which Mango operates.
This is the second investment of the Mango StartUp Studio, after announcing its investment in Recovo last October, the sustainability start-up which specialises in the resale of textile waste.
