Welcome to Episode 132!

Have you ever gotten into a conversation with someone only to realize you were totally unprepared for how much knowledge and value you were about to receive? That’s how I’d describe the following interview, at least it was my experience. The unassuming and mild-mannered entrepreneur and scientist who’s today’s featured founder has spent his entire career working on technology many of us doesn’t even realize exists, and which may come to completely reconfigure how your solar cells function.

Ben Damiani is the co-founder of Solar Inventions, and his research has already dramatically improved solar cell manufacturing, but there’s more to come.
