We are a multi-cultural team with two co-founders from Belgium.
Jasper and Geert are complementary to each other with different backgrounds in economics and engineering. Jasper has Master degrees in both Finance and Law. Geert is a Master in Electromechanic and Intelligent Mobility.
The two founders respectively won several start-up challenges in 2012 and have since then worked together with success on hydro-power projects. They started to build and test the first prototype turbine since summer of 2014 (watch the story behind) , followed by the official founding of Turbulent Hydro in January of 2015.
Other team members with expertise in engineering, sales, marketing, product development, design, IT… are from Europe, Asia, US and South America. We are also backed by a network of experienced advisors and consultants.
