Below is a press release for SolBright Renewable Energy out of Charleston, SC.
Several years ago I coached the company’s founder, Patrick Hassell.
“Brian: Thank you for your great coaching, support and action surrounding our solar initiative. Your introductions and validations were invaluable. We have mobilized a small army of great leaders. Incredible!” - Patrick Hassell, Founder and CEO, SolBright Corporation
Patrick had just come-off another venture in Atlanta. He was ready for a big change in his career-path. Over several months we evaluated his skills, experience and best qualities against several emerging trends. We decided to pursue a new business in the renewable energy space. We negotiated a financial exit from his prior venture, did our industry research, built a terrific business plan, raised additional capital though friends-and-family, and launched this incredible new business that is founded in thought leadership and will lead the way in terms of renewable energy innovation.
We created that business from nothing, gave it form, and proved that a good man with a great vision can do awesome things.
Let’s be part of the Solution.
