Episode 007: Barry Nguyen - EVX Ventures

When you hear the words “Electric Car”, you might be excused for automatically thinking of Elon Musk, but EVX Ventures’ CEO, Barry Nguyen is looking to change that.  EVX Ventures is developing the technology that may some day see us all driving solar powered electric vehicles.  Barry’s journey has taken him from Physiotherapy student, to the cutting edge of electric vehicle design.

Barry made the conscious decision to change his path, reading 52 books on entrepreneurship and personal development in one year.  

Listen to Barry's journey here: -

Before starting EVX Ventures, Barry honed his ability to execute on an idea by starting several businesses in the health and wellness industry.  It wasn't all plain sailing for Barry, with some failures and serious challenges along the way, including difficulties with co-founders in two separate cases.

Throughout the journey, Barry spent much of his time experimenting, learning tuning his intuition, all the while pivoting and moving things forwards, never being satisfied with the status quo or resting on his laurels.

After realising his true passion is in the automotive industry, he started EVX Ventures, and dreams of one day launching a solar powered electric vehicle.
