Sorry, I had missed this news but:
DoveConviene, a Bologna and Sestu, Cagliari-Italy-based digital platform for leaflets and catalogs, raised €3.5m in funding.
The round, which was closed in April 2013, was led by Principia SGR (via Principia II). In conjunction with the funding, Stefano Portu, joined Alessandro Palmieri as co-CEO, business and products. Professor Michele Costabile, professor of Marketing and Management, LUISS, Rome, and Vice President of Principia SGR, joined as Chairman.
The company is using the funds to grow in Italy and scale abroad. It is already present in Spain.
