David, if you were to think back, what are the most important milestones that you are proud of?
Moving to a different country at a young age, let alone starting a career, can be quite challenging at first. Securing a position at Enviko, a UK-based renewable consultancy, was a memorable moment and one which led me to the solar tech industry and eventually sparked the idea to launch PVcase.
The second big milestone was launching Detra Solar, a solar consulting business. Whilst working both in Germany and the UK I got the opportunity to collaborate with awesome companies such as Google, Sony, and Rolls-Royce in delivering some of the most exciting solar projects in Europe.
However, I’d say that launching PVcase was one of the most important events that changed my life upside down. What started as a software project to speed up our daily engineering work has quickly grown into a full-blown technology company serving customers in more than 50 countries. The first three years of PVcase have definitely been a rollercoaster – from selling the first license, picking the right investors to moving to a new office, and growing an international team in the midst of the pandemic.
