Michael Mo is the co-founder and CEO of Kulr Technology Group, which develops and commercializes thermal management solutions for various electronic applications, including consumer electronics, battery storage, and electric vehicles. In this episode of #ThePlaybook, Mo talks with host David Meltzer about his company and his advice for entrepreneurs.

Mo discusses Kulr’s role in space exploration, namely its partnership with NASA to develop a product to stop lithium-ion battery packs from exploding or overheating, and how it is applying that technology to commercial applications. He talks about three technologies the company has adapted from its space program products for commercial use, specifically those for safety, heat containment and transportation of batteries. He also talks about the challenges of cost and scalability in commercializing these technologies. 

Mo advises entrepreneurs to “dream big,” aiming for a goal that is bigger than financial success. He talks about the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover, noting Kulr’s part in the project and its name’s appropriateness.
