This podcast tells the story of one client, let's call him Torquil.
Yes, that's his real name.
We tell the story of how our FREE services will support his dream. His dream is to develop his innovative product called the Human Energy Storage Unit (HESU), a device that can charge batteries from human emotion.
His new battery technology could be world beating, but he needs our support.
Torquil is not one of those walk-in robots from the street, he made an appointment.
And he is holding his severed head under his arm.
Fear not! Camille Moran our EEN Specialist advisor is on hand to guide him through our FREE services.
We will help him researching his market. Find partners to work with in emotionless and emotion-full countries. And we will help him access Horizon 2020 funding for innovation to develop his idea further.
Who knows we might even help him re-attach his head.
