The beauty of working with cleantech disruptors like About:Energy

One of the things I love about being an executive search leader in the Cleantech / ClimateTech space is the opportunity to work with truly groundbreaking companies who are inventing incredible new solutions to some of the world's biggest problems.

One such example is the team at About:Energy in London, UK, a Hyperion client. About:Energy, led by Co-Founders Gavin and Kieran, are disrupting the way batteries are designed - helping to optimise design for each specific customer to get the best from their batteries, via complex modelling and testing software. 

We recently partnered with Gavin and Kieran and the team to recruit their new VP of Sales, who will help further commercialise their software into international markets and help develop new market offerings to help customers in many sectors from Automotive, ESS, F1, Aerospace/Defence etc. 

I love the team's collective passion for driving positive change in the battery segment, enabling society to accelerate the transition towards electrification. They've also been very smart in assembling a fantastic Board of Advisors and Executives from tech innovation and key verticals like Automotive, to strengthen their long-term strategy for success.

Gavin, Founder and CEO of About:Energy, sat down with Hyperion's CEO David Hunt in his Leaders in Cleantech Podcast and shares his personal story along with the origins of About:Energy, the future vision, and how they have assembled a brilliant advisory team. It's a great watch! 

I've worked with many disruptive startups over the years but there is something different about the About:Energy team. I have a feeling that they're on the verge of something special and they're definitely one to watch closely in the next few years!
