When we co-founded the sixth startup I've been involved with in early 2016 it was built around a business model that leveraged my decades of experience developing hydrogen systems, and my business partner's program management expertise, to address some of the most critical global needs: https://blog.matthewemoran.com/2016/02/a-hydrogen-system-architecture-for.html
Most of our investors, colleagues, and customers at the time were intrigued by the concept but unsure that it could become the basis for the sustainable and secure energy transition we envisioned. What a difference seven years has made: https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/The-Race-To-Dominate-The-Green-Hydrogen-Industry.html
Our business focus has also evolved in those intervening years. About half of the current company work is under contract to NASA; and the other half is with private sector customers in aviation, transportation, and energy. The core mission of the business is knowledge transfer to accelerate the transition to hydrogen, which feeds my personal vision to enable a better future for the generations to come.
To that end, have been making much of my expertise gained developing hydrogen systems since the mid-1980s available online to anyone at no cost. Also starting a global monthly hydrogen webinar series to put more knowledge tools into the hands of as many as possible. It's all accessible at www.moraninnovation.com. Let's build a better future together with hydrogen!
