Tell us about your business.I am an innovator by nature. I am continuously looking for new ways to improve people’s life and reducing our impact to the planet. I strongly believe in efficiency. During 16 years, I lived and produced several products in my own small home. 1,900 sqft is not much for a family of 4, a dog and a workshop. One of the challenges was to improve my space utilization, to grow my workshop without affecting my family’s comfort. Bottles were taking significant space. Beer, water, soda and wine bottles on shelves were taking most of my cabinet’s space. I could not find any solution in the market that would improve the space utilization. After several prototypes, a new design is born. It is elegant, cost efficient plus no other design can store more bottles in the same space. I though the design could benefit other people that may have similar space restrictions and that’s how I started Bottle Organizers.
What makes your business stand out?We design products from scratch. From ideation to production, everything has been done in-house. We spend significant part of our time finding the right balance between cost, quality, elegance and performance. We help people and the planet creating sustainable solutions. Solutions that improve space efficiency and energy utilization without forgetting the cost and aesthetics. We believe in a better world driven by technology, innovation, efficiency and compassion.
What's the best business advice you've received?In the early stage of your business, you need to be particularly careful with your expenses. Only spend money on absolutely necessary investments. Think twice how to achieve similar results with minimal expenses. Today’s technology opens opportunities to do more with very little money if you are willing to learn and work hard.
