My Green Space: A place where good things grow
My Green Space™ incorporated last year and during the summer the team tested a web application with 500 users in Canada and the United States. Moll and his team collected feedback and data, allowing them to streamline the app and launch it in the spring of 2016. The app is sort of like Farmville for people who want to do more than play with their food. Moll explains, “People lead busy lives, and we need to reach them where they are—on their smartphones and on their computers. My Green Space is like having a master gardener in your pocket. Our mission is not just about creating a sustainable food system; we really want to encourage people to grow food themselves.”
In December, 2016, the team were accepted as part of the Coast Capital Savings innovation hub which is described on the Sauder School of Business website as “a dynamic space to accelerate social venture growth by bringing together university resources, peer learning, and business networks. The program is defined by its passionate community and collaborative environment.”
My Green Space also completed an Agri-Tech Venture Accelerator Program (AVAP) through The Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) in partnership with the BC Innovation Council (BCIC) and The Government of British Columbia.
