I first got the inspiration for my passion project, SolarAcademy, when I discovered Khan Academy more than a decade ago.
Since then, and especially during the days of working at CivicSolar, I have been thinking about creating systems that accelerate the sharing of useful knowledge through new methods and ways, to help create a more equitable, connected, healthy, and balanced world.
That is the main reason I created SolarAcademy. Our initial focus is on the Solar Industry and in accelerating the dissemination of solar know-how.
What is to follow, who knows? I have a sense it will be other knowledge related to sustainable living on the planet. Knowledge that is wise, timely, and necessary for others to know.
I was invited to talk about my journey of entrepreneurship and my SolarAcademy vision with Zeynep Erden Bayazit of Istanbul Technical University’s (ITU) Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center. Established in 1773, Istanbul Technical University is the 3rd oldest Technical University in the world. Unfortunately, this content is only available in Turkish at the moment.
P.S. I am wondering when YouTube/Google or others will come up with automated English subtitles for Turkish content. My guess, it is probably 3-5 yrs away…
