Part 2: Aslak Stubsgaard explains how to build a nuclear start-up and a unique approach to developing a reactor

Published on: 9th September, 2021

In the last episode, Copenhagen Atomics CTO explained the details of their breeder molten salt reactor. However, so far we left out how they started the company, funded operations for the last 6 years and their unique approach to building reactors, while simultaneously dealing with the legal and practical issues of wanting to deal with fissile material. But before that Aslak explains how he got into the topic of nuclear reactors and how he met his co-founders.

About the Podcast

Deep Tech Stories
A podcast making deep tech accessible by highlighting creators and pulling their tech from the lab into the real world.
What do you need to start a nuclear power start-up? How do you build a company from cutting-edge research? And how do you convince Venture Capitalists to support your quantum computing company?
Deep tech companies are based on significant scientific or engineering challenges, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, nuclear fission and every other crazy thing you can and cannot yet imagine.

My name is Philipp. Currently, I am a PhD student in theoretical physics and in Deep Tech Stories, I explore the tech and stories behind exciting start-up founders and researchers in the deep tech space.
