DescriptionAVA Technologies Inc. (AVA) helps anyone, anywhere get growing. They invented AVA Byte, the "Nespresso for gardening" - a smart indoor garden to empower apartment-dwellers to grow delicious, organic food right at home, all year round, faster than soil. With interest from 45 countries, 850 backers, and $135,000 USD, their Indiegogo campaign was nearly 400% funded. Working directly with Google and Amazon teams, they have developed the first ever voice-activated gardening skills for their patent-pending garden that give them a huge advantage with retailers like BestBuy.
AVA is led by ex-CPG brand marketer and BC 30 Under 30 Winner, Valerie Song. AVA is also the recipient of Artificial Intelligence Awards - Best Indoor Smart Garden, Good Design Award 2019, TechCrunch Top 5 Pick, and 10 other awards. Our executive team and advisors come from 2 successful exits and Fortune 500's like Recon Instruments, Intel, Procter & Gamble, and Microsoft Canada. We've already raised $2.25MM USD in our Seed Round, $1.5M in non-dilutive loans & grants, and a 5,000 unit letter of intent for international distribution.
