In this episode of Tales from the PROS, I chat with Chris Doerfler, who is the Founder of 3DFS Software-Defined Electricity, a company being at the forefront with innovative digital electricity saving and efficiency technology, who also recently won the NC Tech Startup Showcase in which six startups demonstrate technology they hope is future-changing.

We talk about Chris's entrepreneurial journey on how and why he started 3DFS, we discuss his experience in bootstrapping the company and also dealing with investors, the current state of energy saving and its future, his struggles, and much more.

  5. In your experience Chris, how do you see energy evolving and trending? Are there are more positive opportunities due to AI arising or more threats?
