What’s it all about?

I love when small start-ups emerge from accelarators and incubators and start playing with the big boys, engaging with Utilities and large corporates. A partnership increasingly happening and increasingly collaborative, with great results. Here Simon Bushell, CEO of Sympower shares his start-up journey, milestones and thoughts on 100% renewables and an electrified mobility future.

About Simon Bushell: 

Simon is the CEO and one of the founders of Sympower. His mission is to contribute to the systemic change needed to stop the climate crisis. 

Simon featured on Forbes’ 30 under 30 list for Social Entrepreneurs in 2018. In the same year, he was also named a top talent by Dutch daily financial newspaper Het Financieel Dagblad. Outside of Sympower, Simon sat on the inaugural committee of de Jonge Klimaatbeweging, the Dutch Youth Climate Movement, and is a published researcher on the subject of climate change communication.
