SolarEdge (Lior Handelsman, VP of Marketing and Product Strategy, Founder of SolarEdge)

March 12, 2019

This is the story of a Band of Brothers in the Israeli military who pursued a quest to build a company together, eventually settling on an industry they knew little about: solar power.  They went on to build SolarEdge, a publicly-traded company with a market capitalization of over $2 billion.  It has become a juggernaut in their global industry.

In this episode, we interview Lior Handelsman, a co-Founder of SolarEdge, who discusses how they built the company, the challenges they encountered along the way, and what still motivates him personally.  He also discusses how SolarEdge has fundamentally disrupted the solar industry, helping to fuel its rapid global growth, and how several acquisitions they recently made reflect where they see their industry going.
