Unlocking new marketing potential
Ludovico Grassi is co-founder and CMO of This Unique, alongside Lisa Iannello, Vincenzo Mansi, and Alice Carbonara. He has the mission to make a recognizable and high-performance brand.
And how do you become a Loved Brand according to Ludovico? The secret is building an effective strategy, but most of all analyzing and tracking the results as much as you can.
"An effective marketing strategy helps us in every area, but after you have built the strategy, it is also crucial to analyze the results. That's how startups work, you have to constantly test and analyze."
What are the challenges faced by a leader
Has it been a challenge to explain the potential of the brand? What do you think are the traits every founder needs to have to be successful?
Here we have the answer
“At the beginning, we faced a challenge: make investors aware of the need to break the gap in the hygiene products market. Another challenge has been to create the team and the strategy to start spreading our brand”.
And it's not over, Ludovico reveals the secrets behind the growth of This Unique.
“A leader needs to have both technical and personal characteristics. When you are creating a startup, you really know what you are doing only when you analyze the outcomes. So you have to be bold, especially in Italy which is lagging behind in the innovation field compared to other countries”.
To what extent do you think Viceversa has impacted your revenue growth?

Ludovico got in touch by email and started the onboarding process through our platform. The team of This Unique received the Capital in 3 days, right in line with their needs.
