Behind miyo

Smart Garden Solutions – what we mean by that

Innovative, fast and up-to-date: The young start-up company viRaTec GmbH sees itself as a creative think tank for future-oriented IoT solutions. Its current product innovation MIYO puts the company in a position to become an important player in the booming smart garden segment.

In order to further advance technological progress with fully automated smart garden components, the focus is on internationally marketing the core product MIYO together with partners in 2019. After all, the smart home market, which aims to make people’s everyday lives increasingly easier, more convenient and more sustainable, is growing at a tremendous pace.

In addition to classic end customers, the company is also focused on the B2B sector for the future marketing of empirically derived soil data. For example, the resulting optimisation of water consumption could be instrumental in reducing the costs of water supply to the general public in the age of climate change.

our team

Roland Grösslich

managing Director, CEO

Roland Grösslich had the idea for MIYO. As a lateral thinker and in front of the background of the innovative sales strategist and process optimizer, he is responsible for managing the entire company.

more about Robert

Roland Grösslich is a lateral thinker out of passion. In order to lay the foundation for his personal change, he studied international project management and innovation management. Thus, he was able to bring his knowledge up to date. In the mid-1990s, Roland started his sales career in the field of insurance. His rise to become an experienced sales strategist was accompanied by his volunteer leadership work at one of the world’s largest NPOs. Well, more than 20 years later, it was time to break out of this hamster wheel and set up and build a business to your liking. He is regarded as a specialist in the area of ​​designing sales campaigns and optimizing recruiting strategies in sales. During his decades of voluntary work, he has also distinguished himself as a tactics and logistics expert. If he calls it his biggest challenge to bring the concepts of empowerment, innovation and error culture to life with content, then you can see at first glance that success will not be measurable only in sales results. Rather, the sustainability of the company will be the yardstick for success.
