1. Urban Aquaponics - It introduces a new type of agriculture in the urban environment of Sofia. Growing fish and plants simultaneously, in an interconnected system saves 90% more water than traditional farming, produces less waste and saves space. The yield is high all year round without the use of toxic and harmful chemicals as fertilizers or for pest control. They are currently providing homes, restaurants, and shops with custom systems with beautiful fish and leafy greens, herbs or spices.

Currently, they are at an early stage (seed round). The team consists of science people only in the field of chemistry and biology and as of now, they don’t have any financial nor business plan but that will change very soon. 2.
