about this episode

At Stockholm Tech Fest 2017 hosted by Tyler Crowley, Jason sits down with Northvolt CEO Peter Carlsson, formerly of Tesla, who is building Europe’s largest lithium-ion battery factory…and a competitor to Tesla. It’s a fascinating discussion on the future of energy and how we are moving from coal to solar, the emotional (knee-jerk?) reactions to nuclear, what it takes to innovate in energy and storage, and more. Then Jason talks to iZettle founder Jacob de Geer about his fintech powerhouse, taking on Square, massive growth, the European financial market, whether to IPO, and more. Join us and meet Europe’s best.
