Hugo Spowers, entrepreneur-engineer and founder of Riversimple LLP, a company whose purpose is to build cars while systematically eliminating environmental damage, joins ZOOM’D to explore Riversimple’s new energy efficient hydrogen vehicle—and the innovative whole-system business model behind it. Hugo brings to life his years spent designing racing cars and the evolution of Riversimple’s first project, a two seat local car powered by hydrogen fuel cells and a novel “network electric” design offering 300 mpg fuel efficiency. Riversimple is breaking new ground, including business strategies and a governance structure that create an optimum blend of collaboration and competition, alignment among interests, and open source access across users, investors, suppliers, staff, neighbors, and the environment. Join Hugo and ZOOM’D host John Schmidt as they describe rich new opportunities available to local communities through Riversimple and its flexible scale of production alternatives.
