Awesense has the ambitious goal of helping to remove 100 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2025. They have already helped take out 1.5 million tons, the equivalent of removing 200,000 cars from the road. For Founder and CEO, Mischa Steiner, entrepreneurship to solve global problems is the whole purpose.

The entire mission of Awesense is to “help with the decarbonization of the energy system.” But what Steiner “recognized early on was that in order to have impact we had to have a successful business. We couldn’t just have something that nobody would pay for.”

Join the Vancouver Chapter for a virtual dinner/happy hour, where Mischa Steiner will share a short talk about his founder journey and he’ll discuss:

  • The importance of a vision you believe in
  • Offering a product that no one else has
  • Creating a viable business plan to achieve impact
  • Relying on hard work to move through the hard times
  • Using innovations from a different industry

Afterwards, the leadership of Founders Network Vancouver chapter will lead a roundtable discussion.

 

Featured Speaker:

April’15 Cohort Mischa Steiner is the CEO of Awesense, a unique SaaS platform that takes a smarter approach to finding issues on the distribution grid. It combines: in-grid data collected by IoT devices, risk-based analytics software, and operational performance.

Testimonials

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
