Insite Malta is in collaboration with JAYE Malta to promote the innovative Start Up Companies you all need to hear about!
NoGo is a team of six students at the University of Malta from 2 different faculties. Three of them of them are studying Artificial Intelligence at the Faculty of ICT and the other three are studying BCOM at FEMA. They are taking part in the JAYE Start Up company Program as part of their university studies which will give them valuable knowledge and experience which you won’t be able to get anywhere else. With a drive for business and technology, them formed NoGo to produce, market and sell their product.
Their product is called NoGo Grocery. This application aims to help one manage their home stock and in doing so, helps one reduce food wastage in the household. It also results in a person to save more money. It will work by scanning a photo of a receipt or a collection of items, identifying the items bought and adding them to an inventory. Our app will also suggest recipes based on the food that one currently has in his/her pantry.
The aim of the product is to help reduce food waste in the household. It is targeted at the general public with special focus on those that are health and food conscious.
When asked what makes their product unique, the team responded, “This is an app which does not have a lot of direct competition, thus, our app unique in this market.”
They continued to say, “It is very stressful keeping up with the university deadlines as well as JAYE deadlines, along with all the extra meetings that JAYE requires of us. Also, given the current global and local affairs with regards to the COVID-19 it adds more stress to an already stressful situation.”
Finally, the team emphasized how they intend to learn entrepreneurial skills as well as enhancing their time management abilities. When asked if they would condier continuing the company once the program finishes, they said it depends on ther performance in the JAYE competition as well as on everyone’s available time after the competition ends.
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!
