Fastned Charging Day is coming up this week. It is primarily focused on investors. To reach as large a public as possible, the format of an online show was chosen. The complete business of fast charging theoretically can be explained in this three-hour presentation.
Charging as a business is a new phenomenon. Last year, there were four IPOs of charging companies on Wall Street. They were hailed as the new Tesla or at least a new Exxon. Clearly, investors had no idea what they were doing. The stocks were volatile.

That the business grows with the number of fully electric cars on the road. I have been following Fastned for years, and I will be watching on Tuesday, perhaps even asking questions.
The program is promising:
Vision & strategy
- Michiel Langezaal, CEO and founder
Best charging concept
- Maria Garcia, Director Location Design
- Robin Wouters, Director Product and Engineering
- Georg Schmidt-Holzmann, Director Construction and Management
- Yannick Schuermans, Director Operations & Analytics
Location acquisition strategy

- Sara Pasquier, Head of New Markets
Business case financials
- Victor van Dijk, CFO
- Michiel Langezaal, CCE

In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
