For those who don’t know you yet: What is behind BerlinGreen?
Olga: I am Olga, the founder of BerlinGreen and I studied civil and environmental engineering. Already during my studies I started to build up the startup BerlinGreen.
Filip: Hi, I’m Filip, also a founder and I studied Architecture & Urbanism. While working for different, bigger companies I got the idea to start a business. Additionally, I wanted to go in the direction of smart electronics in the home sector. I was able to see for myself in China how popular green vertical gardens are and how the technology behind them works. I then thought, okay, this could be used to develop an interesting business model for the German market. With our GreenBox, we then designed a compact, smart garden box for your own home. A real product that is not only sold via PowerPoint presentations, but can actually be touched. We then applied for funding for the idea from the city of Berlin and founded BerlinGreen at the TU. We built up the company step by step and are now producing in series.
