How it all started

Founding Story

Martin and Alexander met Andreas Spechtler - CEO of Silicon Castles - at a Design Thinking workshop in 2019. During the workshop they developed this crazy idea: On the A10 in Lungau, 10.000 people are stuck in traffic on a single day during the summer. Why don't we develop an app that allows people in the traffic jam to buy products from the farmers in the area and deliver it by drones directly to the car? The idea inspired the three to start a company to develop eGrocery technologies for the demands of the future. They stayed true to the name of the original idea. VIA = street / BIRDS = birds.
