Business Model


There are two problems we are addressing: 1) People who start gardening need help and information. We have developed tools that ease their planning and for this we charge yearly subscription. 2) Specialized garden centers have aging clientele and fail to address young customers. Their problem is lack of online advertising because they do not have the time or knowledge to efficiently use modern and complex marketing tools. For them we have developed payable tools for easier online advertising through our platform.

Target


Increase the number of users to at least 70.000; add disease and pest recognition feature to our app and service; promote seed exchange; exhibit at New trends section of the My Plant and Garden fair in Milan.
