Tesla

Posted by Cyrus Schenck on

Here’s a company who is doing it right.  When you think of starting something totally new, something with an objective to change an entire industry, there are so many pieces of the equation to be taken into consideration.  If it’s going to succeed, every side must be captured. It’s not just about making four wheels and an electric engine. There is so, so much more than just good engineering.  Tesla isn’t in the car industry.

Almost two years ago to the day we decided to take the idea of Renoun and make it into something. It’s been two years of hard work, little sleep and constant re-directing. But it’s been worth it.

This meant not only keeping our direction of travel the same, but also not interrupting one segment of the journey to make the other work.  This brought us to our start, not in the US, but rather in Tokyo, Japan.  I landed last night after...
