Making a More Efficient Hot Water Heater – Tiago Bandeira – Ep 116
Tiago Bandeira is the founder of KLUGIT Energy.
His first product is an electric hot water heater. The problem is that a regular hot water heater does a constant on-off cycle due to heat loss. This cycling wastes a lot of energy.
We talked about how he started this company while working at Bosch, which is ironically a company I used to work for. Bosch sponsored this project and didn’t take any equity. A very strange thing to hear but great for Tiago.
Tiago also ran a kickstarter campaign to prove the concept and that went very well.
Number one tip: “Go for it. It is normal to feel that you are not good enough.”
