California – February 1, 2018
“The experience was harrowing, but worth it”, said CEO, Dr. Catlin Powers.
Each year, more than 40,000 entrepreneurs compete to pitch on Shark Tank. This year, Dr. Powers was selected to pitch her SolSource Solar Stoves, joining the ranks of Shark Tank entrepreneurs pursuing the American Dream by building innovative businesses. Both SolSource Classic and our brand new SolSource Sport solar stoves were featured on the show.
“Shark Tank invited us on, in part, due to our strong social change mission. Our company strives to enable people to achieve energy independence and to improve the lives of millions around the world”, said Dr. Catlin Powers.
Building on past successes as a scientist and social change entrepreneur, Dr. Powers’ company, One Earth Designs, is now launching a new and beautifully designed SolSource Sport solar stove along with a range of accessories for outdoor enthusiasts. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign and delivery to American backers, the team is now in negotiation with top retailers in the USA and internationally.
