Q&A with Hamza Qadoumi
Founder @ Ecobloom
What are your plans for the future?
Our aim is to bring nature closer to peoples´ homes and educate them about sustainable farming. We want to prove that growing your own food is easy and for everyone, by empower people to grow food in a fun and interactive way more locally. By combining an ancient farming method, and today´s technology, we are able to make growing food as easy as pushing a button on your phone. But this is just the beginning. We aim to become a big player in the field of FoodTech and expand to many more markets, in Sweden as well as internationally.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
Being able to build a company with an amazing team, while making a positive impact in the world we live in, is a dream I have long worked to achieve. Helping and educating others´s is one of our core values at Ecobloom.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
Combining food and technology is a trend that is growing rapidly and becoming more and more important. The amount of food that is being lost or wasted every year is outrageous. Not to mention the amount of water used for producing food for human consumption. With the population growing, it is crucial that we find new and innovative ways of growing food more locally. And that is our mission. To be innovate, create and make a difference!
Describe your perfect day at work.
Every day is as interesting as the other, and we constantly work towards reaching our set milestones. We work hard, and we enjoy every minute of it. Combining work with pleasure is something we try to incorporate in everything we do. And that motivates us to work even harder!
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
To never stop learning, and always stay curious. To meet people and share your experience. Be inspired by great minds, as well as inspire others with your dreams and visions. And to always have the mindset that nothing is impossible. Let´s go!
