Welcome to Episode 134 of SunCast!

It was almost exactly a year ago that I had the honor and privilege of having the eponymous Jigar Shah on SunCast. To celebrate the anniversary of this episode, and the fact that it’s currently the most downloaded episode of the year, I’m re-publishing it so the numerous new listeners to SunCast this year get a chance to hear it. 

Maybe you've heard him on the popular podcast The Energy Gang, or you helped put him at the top of the Solar #100 list as one of his nearly 20K Twitter followers, but hopefully today you’ll hear something you haven’t heard before as we discuss:

  • How Jigar's early career and family life shaped the companies he's built

  • Why Jigar believes you can't build a business as a side-hustle

  • SunEdison's early days of financing, and how that influences his own investing ethos

  • What Jigars sees smart entrepreneurs doing to win

  • And of course, his Bold Prediction
