Lex Hoefsloot at TNW2018 – “If you can’t solve the problem, make it bigger”

Lex Hoefsloot — CEO & Co-Founder

Upon first hearing about climate change, the problem seemed simple. Digging into the system deeper however revealed complications. An electric car is not sustainable by default as its electricity comes from fossil fuels. This is why we need to renew the whole system, and put the infrastructure inside the car. The idea of the solar car is born. We want to take this idea and prepare for the jump to the mass market. Watch the entire presentation here:
