What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

My current challenges are scaling from a small co-founder development team that built multiple prototypes to a broader commercial product-oriented team that can address business operational challenges from manufacturing, supply chain, sales & marketing, financial planning, market strategy, and partner and channel distribution.

Actions I’ve taken so far

We have built multiple functional prototypes of the Personal Energy Platform (PEP), a portable energy storage product, and demonstrated the PEP to consumers, retailers, and different energy sector entities. The product has patent pending status, we anticipate patent issuance in Q3'2022. We have expanded our existing product design and manufacturing vendor lists in anticipation of commercial manufacturing. We have the technical specifications and power layouts completed for production development and can build commercial units within 4 months of seed level funding. We are reaching out to potential sales and product delivery partners. Our solution is currently under evaluation for the Solar Impulse Foundation's Efficient Solutions label, which would provide global awareness and market opportunities.

My future goals

My personal future goal is to provide everyone an affordable energy storage product that can make positive changes in their lives and help the planet. My business future goals are to gather others with diverse skills, who share our vision, and can assist in bringing our product to market. We want to bring energy equity to everyone, no matter their socio-economic status, or whether they are renters or homeowners, urban or rural, on-grid or off-grid.

My motivations to work with a mentor

I believe you are never too old or experienced to not gain from others who can assist and be mentors. Throughout my professional career in computers, networking, and cybersecurity, there were always others who assisted me, and I mentored many others over the years. I'm pursuing a different chapter in my career. I have a lot of knowledge and expertise, but I can gain from the knowledge and expertise of others.


About my venture

Off The Wall Energy Inc. Started 2017

Our Personal Energy Platform fills the gap between costly and complex stationary whole-house residential energy storage systems operating 24/7/365 and standalone portable power stations operating in an as-needed power backup role. The Personal Energy Platform offers an alternative approach with a portable energy storage system operating 24/7/365 that reduces costs and complexity while giving all consumers independent control over their energy usage and an ability to individually reduce CO2 emissions.

Countries of operation: Italy, Germany, Brazil, France, Belgium, United States of America, Mexico, United Kingdom, Nigeria, Switzerland, Netherlands
