Invertex’s technology allows customers to scan their bodies and get size recommendations for shoes and clothes. The company's software can run on in-store tablets or through mobile applications for at-home shopping.

Founded in 2014, Invertex raised $2 million dollars in April 2017 in a funding round led by Jerusalem-based equity crowdfunding venture capital firm OurCrowd with participation from fashion company Permoda Ltda.
