Our founders first met at the Technical University of Denmark, carrying out research in integrated switched-mode power supplies and nanofabrication. Six years and three PhDs later, we are now ready to bring the technology to the market.
Our leadership team combines a range of complementary skills, competencies and experience. An assessment of the capabilities of the combined team was performed by Danish consulting firm TeamsToWork in October 2020.
Lotus’ organization is expected to grow steadily over time. The primary additions to the team will be concentrated into business development and production engineering, executed as business grows and financing is raised.
