We can be very helpful by making introductions, whether it's to investors, CPAs or attorneys.

Host Ann Revell-Pechar and Co-Host Cal Hackman of Carolina Connections Radio welcomed into the studio Russ Kanjorski with Semprius and Chris Stoecker with Silicon Valley Bank on May 29, 2014 in the Business RadioX Studio.

Russ Kanjorski is the Vice President of Business Development at Semprius, Inc., an innovative solar company that uses patented technology and a state-of-the-art manufacturing process to produce cost-competitive, sustainable solar electricity. Semprius products provide extremely cost-effective energy using solar modules that regularly reach 35% efficiency -- twice that of standard solar panels.

Semprius is currently in eight countries and four U.S. states. In the U.S., their technology is most effective in the Southwest because of the amount of sun they receive – important, as the technology utilizes a tracker system to follow the sun. Primary customers include engineer procurement and construction companies (EPC), those responsible for choosing the technology to be used on new construction sites.

Joining the interview from Silicon Valley Bank was Chris Stoecker, Director of the Carolina Region. Stoecker described the company as “a bank for the innovation economy with a core mission to increase the innovative company’s probability success worldwide.”

Silicon Valley Bank, a commercial bank that specializes in technology start-up companies of any size, but is not limited to that industry, builds relationships with their clients at the early stages of their business. The firm is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, has 27 offices in the U.S., and additional joint venture offices in the United Kingdom and China. The bank assists their clients not with just their financial needs, but by partnering with them. “We can be very helpful by making introductions, whether it’s to investors, CPAs or attorneys,” explained Stoecker.
