I had a very interesting conversation with John Belizaire. John is very passionate about saving the world, to make the world a better place to live. John is the CEO of Soluna Computing, Inc. John is on a mission to reimagine the renewable energy grid and to make renewable energy more efficient and environmentally friendly. Soluna is currently focused on some of the biggest unsolved problems for the economics of renewable energy: sustainable computing, sustainable data center spaces and wasted energy.
Since the age of 14 selling floppy discs in high school, John has had an entrepreneurial spirit and interest in technology. He was a recipient of the Intel Scholarship Program and he went on to receive a computer science and engineering degree from Cornell University. When he was 28 years old, he sold his first start-up company for $150 million. He has gone on to become a versatile CEO and serial entrepreneur who has successfully founded and scaled several more multi-million dollar technology companies. Today, John believes that his company Soluna will be helping to shape the future of renewable energy development. His expertise as both a highly effective business leader and technology strategist has enabled his new venture and operational success steering complex initiatives from concept to funding, launch and growth. John conversation was amazing and super interesting. We spoke about the floppy disk and which that was fun to talk about. We also spoke on some interesting topics such as (a)
Renewable Energy Transition & Its Biggest Challenge (b) Wasted Energy
(c) Computing Is A Better Battery (d) Why Sustainable Computing Is Ready For Scale Now Can Be The Best Catalyst For Making Renewable Energy A Superpower
Cryptocurrency Mining, Blockchain & Why They Are Important Technologies That Can Fuel Future Energy (f)
