What is Inventora?

Inventora is a simple inventory management and planning software for small handmade businesses, and other businesses that manufacture their own products in-house. Dianna and Jeremy started building Inventora in late 2020 because Dianna was unable to find anything viable to manage her inventory across raw materials and finished products for TERRA (her other business which makes candles and other handmade products). Inventora opened up for public use in February 2021, and has quickly grown to a household name that is highly recommended in the handmade industry.

Company Leadership

Dianna Allen


Dianna traveled to more than ten countries before returning to St. Louis to start TERRA (candles & home fragrance) in 2019, and then Inventora at the end of 2020. She is a talented design & marketing mind, and has grown both of these brands from zero to a cult following.

He’s an engineering leader who has lead large teams and built ambitious projects, not the least of which is Inventora—a whole inventory management and ERP system for small handmade businesses.
