We had a wonderful support crew on our recent journey through Lightning Lab Electric including Jason McDonald who formed part of our mentor team and who gave us a generous introduction at our demo day. Now Jason has kindly stepped up to join our advisory board and we could not have asked for anyone better to help us deal with the complexities of the energy sector.
Apart from operating his own business strategy consultancy, Jason has a huge background of experience in the electricity industry. As a director of Orion, one of New Zealand’s largest lines network providers and a former senior executive at Meridian Energy, Jason is well placed to offer strategic advice about the evolving energy landscape. Jason is a director at Mevo, a startup providing high end electric car sharing. As an advisor to Lightning Lab itself, Jason also has a great overview of where technology and startups are heading right now.
We’ve enjoyed working with Jason during Lightning Lab and are really pleased to have him on board for the next stage in our journey.
