India has one of the most ambitious national plans for rooftop solar – 100 GW by 2023 – yet adoption by homes and small businesses remains slow due to broken customer experience and lack of awareness. Rooftop solar is expected to become ubiquitous in a few years in India, just like Wifi or refrigerators. This market is eyed by thousands of local contractors as well as India's biggest corporate houses such as Tata & Reliance. SolarSquare aims to be the #1 residential solar company in India and solarize 100k homes by 2024. Shreya Mishra will share her entrepreneurial journey and how the company plans to win in this market that is about to explode. She will elaborate on SolarSquare's business model, cracking sales & distribution in a country with millions of addressable homes for solar, raising venture capital, and challenges ahead.
