All About Nikola Motor Company’s Stock Offering

In our recent guide to investing in fuel cell stocks, we reflected on how the hydrogen economy hasn’t quite matured and – according to Elon Musk – shouldn’t ever mature. Battery-powered vehicles seem to be working out just fine, so why reinvent the wheel? At least one company disagrees with Mr. Musk. Nikola Motor Company […]

Unreasonable Group Tackles World’s Greatest Challenges

It’s not surprising that billionaires come with big egos, though the recent revelation from SoftBank’s CEO Mayoshi Son that he’s kind of like Jesus seems like some outsized hubris even for him. After all, Son is not exactly walking on water these days, as his outsized Vision Fund has lost about $17.7 billion last year, […]

A Guide to Investing in Fuel Cell Stocks

We recently published a piece on how hydrogen fuel cells might be used to power drones that carry humans, leading one of our readers to remark, “not the ‘hydrogen economy’ again!” We share those sentiments, having watched fuel cell technology take off at a crawl with no widespread adoption apparent. While fuel cells are being […]

Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Urban Air Mobility

We recently profiled a startup that is developing a flying motorcycle to go along with a jetpack that it designed and built a few years ago.

A Clean Food Stock That’s Not Beyond Meat

If you’ve not spent time in the United Kingdom, you’d be excused for not knowing about a company called Innocent Smoothies.

WiTricity and Wireless Charging for Electric Vehicles

If someone sold a $100 device that would automatically charge your phone within “Wi-Fi distance,” we’d probably all have one in our homes. Is it a big conspiracy by the phone companies so they can continue selling us over-priced charging […]

8 Israeli Waste and Recycling Startups

While Silicon Valley is synonymous with innovation, the lesser-known Silicon Wadi is perhaps more impressive. In Arabic, “wadi” means valley, so it’s a fitting way to describe the high concentration of technology companies on the coastal plain of Israel. For a country with just over 8.7 million people (that’s about the same size as New Yawk City), Israel […]

Managing Biosecurity in the Livestock Industry

If you thought taking care of a pet was a big responsibility, try caring for thousands of animals as if your livelihood depended on it. It’s what livestock farmers do every day across the globe, and it’s an occupation that’s coming under increased pressure from all angles. A decrease in demand for dairy and meat, large corporations that […]

The World’s Most Valuable Wool – Astino

If you had to guess which country in the world produced the most sheep, you might be tempted to say New Zealand. You may be surprised to hear that the country with the most sheep is now China with 175 million. New Zealand with around 27 million doesn’t even make it into the top five. […]
