What does it take to build a successful clean-tech business?
Are the new age leaders in clean-tech different from the conventional business leaders?
What do the investors look for when they evaluate a clean-tech start-up?
All this and more is discussed in this episode where I interview David Hunt, CEO of Hyperion Executive Search and the host of ‘Leaders in clean-tech’ podcast.
Top 3 takeaways from the conversation
- The universal requirement for a successful business is a good business model, good technology and a good founding team.
- There is no single path to become a clean-tech entrepreneur and a business leader but the challenges in raising capital and building a team is universal.
- Successful founders and CEOs tend to be visionaries with a clear idea and the ability to communicate it to a wider audience.
