“Alterno’s passion for solving the energy issue, especially in light of the Vietnam gasoline crisis, was commendable. Their deep understanding of the challenges and commitment to making a meaningful impact were evident. Despite requiring substantial capital and intricate technology implementation, I’m confident they will swiftly develop their first prototype to embark on their deep tech journey and would be more than happy to support them throughout.”
