Joana Mateus is a young girl who doesn’t know how to do a lot of things but who is ready to learn some of them. Well, most of the time she is pretty sure she knows how to draw letters, imaginary people and clouds.
Over the past few years Joana studied Design at the Universidade de Aveiro in Portugal and at the Universität Leipzig, in Germany. All in all, she is a 1.76 tall designer who likes sunny days and recently discovered she also enjoys drawing fish scales. Ah, wait! Her mother sells fish too!
is a recent graduate in Food Engineering, currently doing a Master in Quality Management and Food Security. She loves the food sector since it’s very broad and dynamic due to the constant appearance of new food types and associated dangers.
Although she is from Lisbon, she fell in love easily by Peniche where she is currently living and studying and where she gained great knowledge about the fish industry, which she is happy to transfer to this project.

is a freelance Portuguese business consultant who has lived a bit everywhere. From China to Spain, from London to Lisbon. Starting off as an architect in Shanghai in 2006 soon focus shifted to international project management and, after completing her MBA at Imperial College in London, solving strategic business dilemmas keeps her heart beating fast. Guida has recently moved back to Portugal, where she is helping several small and medium enterprises (SME’s) successfully export. At the same time she is introducing foreign companies to the unique Portuguese retail context and is an university researcher in marketing innovations. On top of that, Guida easily assumes an addiction for sailing and everything nonsense.
