My guest today is Vidal Bharath, COO of Bramble. Bramble’s mission is to power the net zero future. Bramble Energy has developed a unique, patent protected, printed circuit board (PCB) fuel cell - the PCBFC that solves perhaps the greatest barriers to the adoption of fuel cells: manufacturing complexity, scale-up and crucially cost. In this episode, Vidal talks about why he joined Bramble as employee #1, how they work, their funding journey and his thoughts on hiring and culture.
