Eco Inflate’s New Greenhouse Initiative

Posted On May 1, 2020

Insite Malta is in collaboration with JAYE Malta to promote the innovative Start Up Companies you all need to hear about!

We are Eco Inflate and we all attend St Martins Institute of Higher Education. The Start Up Company Program is part of their Diploma course, however they are glad they got the experience to build their own company and product.

Eco Inflate’s product is a cheaper alternative to the glass greenhouses since it will be of full one-piece plastic. This greenhouse has a potable water base that would have two uses to it. The water could be used for cleaning, drinking or irrigation for farmers. The water base would be a good anchor for the greenhouse to stay stable in strong winds as well.

Their aim is to provide farmers a cheaper and safer solution to protecting and growing their crops. Their product would also be targeting Red Cross to use the same product as an easy and quick alternative first aid tent. As a team, they thrive for the well being of both the environment and the people around it.

We have assigned everyone to a particular role in the company. We start off by work individually with our own strengths and then we would compile our work accordingly. As a team, we have discussions and help one another on our findings.” Eco Inflate stated in their interview.

The team is still not sure if they will continue their Start Up or not however irrelevant of their results in the National Finals, they are content by learning how to run a business and how it feels to work in the real world.

Make sure to follow the JAYE Awards on the 3rd of May at 18:00 via Facebook Live to see which team take the title of StartUp of the Year and represent Malta at the European Enterprise Competition 2020!
