At the time we were sharing a flat in the sunny Barcelona (Spain) that stated to look like a jungle, we all love plants!
After killing more that we like to admit, we began studying how to make plant care effortless.
What started as a DIY project for our home, soon became our main focus for months.
Taking care of plants is hard, we don't always have the time nor the knowledge to do it well. Apparently 3 out of 4 plants die within 6 months from purchase, which proves the point.
We started wandering if we really needed all those plants in the house.
Turns out plants are quite important for our health, both physically and mentally.
We started putting down ideas and talking with people, to better understand the main issues related to plant care.
We spent our days studying, building and testing, not knowing exactly were we were heading.
The Turning Point
By Summer we had a clear idea about what we were trying to build and its purpose.
We decided to bring it to market and raised 250.000 US$ from three early investors that believed in our vision and loved the product.
This allowed us to focus on improving the product to reach the ambitious goal we had.
In September 2020 we ultimated our first working prototype and partnered with some exceptional companies that share our vision and will help us bring to market a top-notch product.
Despite being thrilled at the progress made so far, we are constantly improving KORU to bring your plants to the next level.
Join us in our journey!
Our goal is to launch on Kickstarter to introduce you KORU and ask for your help and support to sustain the costs of full production and be the first real judges of our product.
The road ahead is not easy, but we are confident that with our passion and your support we can achieve anything.
