We participated in NASA Epic Challenge -program during the 2015-2016, where our goal was to design a food growing unit for use on Mars.
We did lots of research and all the results were supporting the superiority of an aeroponic system so we started to study and test it even more.
May 2016 we received 1000 € funding from DRAFT-micro funding project, later that year we also received extra 300 € for active participation on Showroom -events. Showroom events were also a nice opportunity for us to present our idea and gather new contacts.
In November we placed 1st at the Karhunpesä business idea competition in Tuusula, and were awarded a meeting with CEO of AgFunder Rob Leclerc.
We participated in Start Me Up -business idea competition in March and we made it to the top 17 out of 180 teams! We will hear the results in 11th of May in the Awarding ceremony. There is also a Pitch Me Up -event on the 11th of May in Joensuu Science Park, just before the Awarding ceremony of the business idea competition, so hopefully we will win some extra funding!
