Marketing, sales, psychology and designing user experiences have always been Martina's passion. She studied at Tallinn University of Technology and while completing her Business Management and Marketing degree, decided to pursue a career in a field that would combine them all. Outside of working hours Martina loves playing tennis, riding her bicycle, traveling and reading a good autobiography.
Martina first heard of Click & Grow when she was just 12 years old while watching the business idea contest "Ajujaht" together with her family. "I was very entrepreneurial and I loved seeing what kind of products, apps and services people came up with. Click & Grow was part of that show in 2010 and the idea of smart garden and growing my own plants seemed very cool. Little did I know that in 11 years I would be part of Click & Grow myself!"
Which aspect of working at Click & Grow do you enjoy the most?
I love the growing part of the company. We are always developing something new and want to reach new heights. It might be hectic at times but after completing a big project or launching a new product it always feels very satisfying. I also love the facts that we have a community of gardeners all over the world. Meaning that I have the opportunity to get a unique working experience since there aren’t many companies in Estonia who cover that many markets. And lastly I love the people that I work together with.
What are some of the most important things you’ve learned at C&G?
Probably the spiritual part of the plants that plants can be healing and help a person to be happier. It's not always about the food or vitamins but rather the process of watching the plants grow.
What is your favorite place in nature?
I love going to the sea/ ocean. There is something calming about walking at the beach or just watching the sea.
What is the biggest plant you’ve seen / most amazing plant you’ve had a chance to meet?
I don't think I have any or at least can't think of one.
Name a song that cheers you up every time:
"Walking on sunshine"
How many houseplants do you have?
Unfortunately not many since I am not good at keeping them alive. But I do have my Smart Garden 9 and I grow different plants there.
What is your favorite plant to grow in a Smart Garden?
Basil, since I am a huge lover of pesto pasta.
