In this episode 144 of "Failing to Success", Juan Carlos Diaz, co-founder of Luxun Energy, shares their journey in the energy industry, providing green energy solutions without upfront investment. Initially, they faced fundraising challenges but managed to secure $30,000 from friends and family to begin installations. Positive validation from a major client boosted their confidence. They created a private fund, demonstrating that investors were interested in renewable energy projects. During the pandemic, they persevered and secured funding from a local bank. Subsequently, they raised $43 million from major funds. Diaz advises entrepreneurs to constantly validate and adapt their business while seeking unconventional funding routes.
