Insights

During Startup Weekend Berlin (November 2017) Jelena Acker, founder and pictured on the right, and the Greencademy team, went out to Berlin to collect data from interviews. We gained insight from people about their gardening habits, aspirations and daily lifestyles that helped us understand our audience. 

Below, is our breakdown and analysis of the data we collected from the interviews as well as my explanation to the team of analyzing the organizing that information into user goals and needs.
