This week David talks to entrepreneur and founder Artur Sychov about his journey from realising his product vision, to choosing to walk away from the company he created. We all know life as a cleantech entrepreneur is not easy, bringing a product to market in a nascent sector especially so. Having the right investor/funder is also mission critical.  Artur shares some his experiences, learnings and advice from this thrilling but ultimately frustrating experience.

About our guest

Artur is a former investment banker and energy trader, a Finance and Management MBA, that fell in love with the Tesla Model S, and developed an EV Charging product for multi-storey car parks and parking houses, despite being a finance person, not an engineer.  He has learned enormously from his recent experiences and will be back soon with a new project.
