June 16, 2020 is a milestone in the history of Greenzy. After being stopped by the beginning of the pandemic, the creation of the Greenzy limited liability company (SRL) and the signature at the notary's office can finally take place in an atmosphere of social distancing and compulsory wearing of the mask!

Birth of the application📱

March 1, 2020

A contact with an application developer and a UX specialist who are passionate about their project allows them to start the delicate and difficult work of developing a first MVP (minimum viable product) of the application that will be used to monitor the compost, which is essential for obtaining quality compost within 2 months.

2020 starts with a bang 👊

January 1, 2020

In early 2020, Adélaïde and Laetitia continue to work on all fronts. They start in parallel the research of subsidies and investments and test the prototype II in order to learn as much as possible in all the fields (sensors, insect contaminations, ventilation, etc).

Second prototype! 💛

October 1, 2019

Quimesis, an industrial designer, is working on plans for a prototype II that will incorporate all the necessary modifications noted on the prototype I. And Vocsens, a gas sensor specialist, is working on the design of the sensor architecture and connectivity.

A full-time job 💼

September 1, 2019

The choice of working full time on Greenzy is obvious. Adélaïde and Laetitia will work unpaid, while Fiona will pursue a PhD in Canada while collaborating as much as possible on the project.

First prototype! 🧡

September 1, 2018

The first prototype of the composter is born between September 2018 and June 2019 as part of Adélaïde and Laetitia's end-of-study thesis. It is a large steel tank very far from the final design, but the results are already convincing on the compost side: they get wall compost after 2 months.

Financing 💰

June 1, 2018

First grants and funds awarded to Greenzy (Student Angel Funds, Innovation Cup).

A startup called Greenzy 🍃

Feb. 1, 2018

Greenzy becomes the final name of the startup. The market studies and the different interviews confirm the founders in this project of indoor composter. The question of financing then arose. Indeed, the project is expensive (prototyping this type of product is not cheap!).

Arrival at the Yncubator ✌

October 1, 2017

The project enters the Yncubator, an incubator for student startups located in Louvain-La-Neuve.

Birth of the project ♻️

Feb. 1, 2017

Three young committed students, Adelaide, Fiona and Laetitia, meet with the will to launch a project with a positive impact, the need to undertake and a problem of composting in winter for the mother of one of them. This is how the story of Greenzy and its indoor composter begins!
