Tweetable Quotes

“For me, the transition from science to business was a beautiful opportunity to see how those other things I was learning - and also, at the next level, I was teaching to my students - really work in real life.” (12:35) (Magdalena)

“I guess, for me, this is extremely beautiful that there are unfinished projects. And there’s always a path we can unfold and there’s always ways in which we can improve.” (17:08) (Magdalena)

“Starting with the benefits, we can increase the efficiency of crops up to twenty percent. The plants, in general, grow better because the oxygen is a biogenic gas, and when we deliver more oxygen to the plant-root systems, the plants grow faster and bigger.” (28:19) (Magdalena)

“In general, we don’t face that many climate issues in Poland. The climate is moderate. There’s still plenty of land that can be used for agriculture. But I guess what’s more important for us, as I mentioned before, people from Warsaw and Poland in general who becoming really aware when it comes to ecology. There are lots of vegans in Poland. Vegans not only don’t eat animal products, but they also think about the environment a lot. So they want to buy local products and for them vertical farming is great because it means no chemistry, no pesticides, fresh product, no deliveries, no carbon dioxide emissions, and so on.” (38:33) (Magdalena)
