Beside of participating in this wonderful TEAM, it was also a great honor to meet with the Mayor of Palo Alto Pat Burt, talking about sustainability (on the 🚌), to meet Saeed Amidi, Founder and CEO of Plug and Play Tech Center, talking about early seed investments and sustainability, and to learn from Richard Sassoon, Yi Cui, (Standford University) and Martin Winter MEET Battery Research Center what we can do better in the global competition of innovation.

BUT the big picture was fulfilled by our „energizing“ companies and their concrete solutions for global energy challenges.
