What’s it all about?
I fist saw Instagrid pitch at an investor event about 3 years ago, and they blew me away. Such an obvious idea, but difficult to do, such a big problem that no one thinks about, but Andreas and his Co-founder Sebsatian did, and they are now scaling like crazy. If you like batteries, tools, buildings, or clean air, you’ll love this episode.
