Last Friday, March the 10th, was the big day.
We had the amazing opportunity to present our start-up, Phytoponics, at the Startupbootcamp Foodtech Demo day in Rome, sponsored by Cisco.
We celebrated the end of the accelerator program with a successful pitch from our CEO, Adam Dixon, in front of more than 500 investors, corporates, guests and press attendees in the beautiful venue of Auditorium Parco della Musica.
During the past three months we have been working hard, mentored by accomplished professionals such as Peter Kruger & Paolo Cuccia. Thanks to their support we are currently installing our first pilot trial with one of the market leading commercial growers in Italy.
We were really excited about introducing Phytoponics, our affordable, sustainable and scalable hydroponic growing system.
During the event we took the opportunity to open our seed round which will close in May 2017. We are asking for €500K and, during the pitch we announced for the first time that Finance Wales will cover 44% of them. The money we are raising will support us on the launch of our product in Italy in August and on the improvement of our production system, fully automating it.
We would be excited to engage with potential investors and new partners to advance our goal, so if you want to know more about the concept and technology behind our company or you just want to have some further details about our future plans and strategy, please contact us!
