ALUMNI INSIGHTS WITH ROLAND GRÖSSLICH, CEO OF VIRACUBE
We bring smart home into your garden.
WHAT PROBLEM DO YOU SOLVE?
Until now smart home ends at the outer wall of the house, and the irrigation control system irrigates your garden at 7pm for 15minutes and, if it’s raining or not. And we bring your garden a step further into a smart home and we developed an intelligent garden irrigation system.
WHAT ARE YOUR LESSONS LEARNED?
The biggest lesson we’ve learned is, that if you think the first time about external money, look for investors!
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
We are both, Alexander and I are both very proud of being the first ones doing this. The first ones who are bringing a simple irrigation system into a complex smart home system.
WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE LESSON FROM YOUR STARTUP LIVE EXPERIENCE?
Startup Live was the kickoff of viRaCube. We have been there in November 2015, and it was the kick off. It was the beginning, it was the start.
GAINED ANY PARTNERS OR COOPERATIONS?
Yes, Alex Kucera was the first mentor we’ve had, and he is doing the app design.
YOUR ARVICE FOR FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS?
You have three things you have to know. Know your audience! Know your Jury and, of course, know your product. And if you are knowing all this, it will be a good pitch. Love what you do!
