Episode 643: ChargeNet Stations with Tosh Dutt – Thom Singer

Episode 643 of “Making Waves at C-Level” is a deep dive to the world of charging stations for electric vehicles.  ChargeNet is a San Diego startup that is making waves in the world of how and where you can charge your car.  Tosh Dutt is the co-founder and CEO of the company that recently was a finalist in the San Diego Angel Conference.

While there is still only a small percentage of people who have electric cars, the numbers are growing fast and in the next decade we all may be looking for places to charge up.  Right now planning a trip means thinking ahead about getting power, but every corner in the city and every offramp on the freeway has fast food franchises.  What if you could pull in, and get a fast-charge in ten minutes while eating your burger or chicken nuggets?  That make your life easy, and that is the goal of Tosh Dutt and the team at ChargeNet.

One of the coolest things about this podcast is finding companies and entrepreneurs who are really “making waves” and shaking up industries.  This company is doing just that.  This is a company to watch and you can say “I heard about them first on a podcast”.
