Hi! My name is Brendon Geils. I currently attend Iowa State University studying electrical engineering. I am originally from Elgin, IL a suburb of Chicago. My fondness for entrepreneurial ventures and technology related businesses has led to the founding of a startup, Sodima Solutions. Building Sodima Solutions I’ve learned invaluable lessons, which I share in my blog. My current hobbies include chess, philosophy, programming and traveling (cliche we know, who doesn’t).
Check out my blog for more information regarding technology, entrepreneurship, and programming. The blog is geared towards young entrepreneurs that want to make a positive social impact. Much of the blog contains tips and motivation in business and technology. I included ventures and projects of my own so you can learn from the mistakes I made along the way, and trust me there were plenty.
What I am currently working on:
- Energy Blockchain – The general idea is to allow property owners (commercial & residential) to trade electricity with one another. In some countries the energy provider charges a factor more for the energy they sell compared to the energy they would buy back (feed-in tarif). If someone had the ability to sell the their neighbor they would close this gap with a free market (built on blockchain for security and proof of work). We won a hackathon in the Netherlands, competed in Helsinki, Finland and just finished a virtual hackathon in Dubai with this idea.
