Interview with AKM Global
Segment One: About The Business
Tell us about AKM Global — what do you guys do?
AKM Global is a global concept of smart bio food Restaurant which includes several innovative decisions in agriculture, raw materials deep processing, equipment engineering, manufacturing, logistics, retailing and customer service. The introduction of the latest engineering developments and control of the entire operational cycle allows AKM Global significantly reduce the prime cost (minimum by 50%!) and, accordingly, the retail price.
Always fresh ingredients of AKM Global organic farm guarantee high quality and the most useful end product. Another undeniable advantage of the company is the utilization of blocking technology in procurement, logistics and customer service that provides high level of transparency and customer trust.
AKM Global is a Cologne, Germany-based company founded in 2008. The company is led by founder and CEO Rem Maer, who is the main inspirator and creative mind.
Other key members of the team include Waldemar Albach, Head of Engineering, who has 35+ years of experience as an architect/engineer, Andreas Erben CNC Programmer.
Where did the inspiration for AKM Global come from?
Our inspiration is a sincere wish to be useful to humanity, to create high quality and affordable products for everyone. We want to bring benefits to our consumers and make the world better not on the words but in reality. We are true evangelists of what we do and our supporters are perpetual source of inspiration for us.
Apart from as an investment, who would receive the most value by investing in your ICO?
The most value by investing in AKM Global ICO will get the Consumer being that our consumers are the participants of a global project that will last for a long, long time. Our goal is to work in this huge market for a consumer because quality food will become more valuable from year to year. In the nearest future it will be even more valuable than gold, gas and oil all together.
How does AKM Global differentiate itself from its competitors (if there are any)?
We can answer this question very shortly — we are out competition. Who can be our competitors? All our energy and knowledge is focused on the product development and not on moneymaking. This is our big difference from other companies on the food market.
Sustainable agriculture and control of the whole process from the garden bed to the retail, innovative technologies and love for the nature and customer differentiate us from others.
How have you grown AKM Global presence in the market?
This challenge is still waiting us ahead. Together with the opening of the first AKM Global subsidiaries, the global marketing campaign will follow. We sure that it will have a big success because the product is unique and unsuperable.
How is your team structured? What benefits do you believe that brings?
Currently our team is more creative than structured. Everybody has its own task, we gather every week and discuss the results and define the future steps. We have collective creative activity. There is one project manager that coordinates all processes but is not a boss.
Of course, when the company grow more and expand the geography of presence, then adequate HR intsruments will be used. I want to underline that we do not do business we do a common cause.
What are the biggest challenges in the industry you have had to overcome?
The main challenge that is waiting for us in the future is opposition of the companies that are currently leaders of the food market. In the future compete with us will be difficult for them so different unethical methods will go into play. Yet, we are ready for their provocations. Our answer to that will be one and only — high quality innovative product at reasonable price. And we let the consumer to choose.
How have you found starting a cryptocurrency and trying to take your company global?
This process is very long it took more than 8 years and it was together with the concept creation. The first thoughts that company should have its own currency were in 2008. The product is basic (#1 for a human) and will have a great demand all over the world hence we have to go global.
What’s next for AKM Global? Do you have plans to grow, expand or diversify?
The project “AKM Pizza” Bio food Restaurant is international and aims to have a lot of branches all over the world. This year we will also continue working under the other projects also related to the bio food industry:
- AKM City Market (network of organic supermarkets)
- AKM ice cream & coffee (cafeteria)
- AKM Bakery
- AKM water and drinks
- AKM Baby foods
We have a huge plans for the future. Yet the closest goal is to open the first subsidiaries of AKM Global (Restaurant + City market + Cefeteria, bakery) together with the development of our own agriculture base and further engineering inventions. First goal is to be achieved by 2018–2019 years.
Where would you ideally like to be in 5 years?
We see the company AKM Global in every house and everybody as a consumer, whether enjoying our production or using AKM crypto in transactions or payments.
If you had to give one piece of advice to an up and coming blockchain entrepreneur, what would it be?
Currently there is a prevailing negative trend on the market, it is called speculation.
Speculation kills economy, evolution, healthy product development, decent businessmen and producers first of all. Speculation is a “trojan virus” that kills everything. It is the core of all problems in society.
My advice is not to speculate but to work in real sector of economy, with a real product that is useful to each and everyone. Only at these conditions, you can achieve a real success.
Speculation and chasing after profits destroy all economy sectors. Only short-sighted cannot see it. It is obvious that in 15–20 years the humanity will face a real problem — absence of the water and healthy food. The future of our children and descendants is in danger.
We call for a union around the project that brings goodness to all humanity.
