Podcast: Interview with João Hackerott
If you are an educated meteorologist, chances are you don’t have much training in how to start or run a small business because business class requirements are non-existent in most meteorology programs. However, there are meteorologists who have managed to grow businesses selling meteorology products and services.
One example is Dr. João Hackerott, who started his company when he was a PhD student at the University of São Paulo in Brazil. He used his skills as a academic and experience as a competitive sailor to create forecasts specifically for his customer’s needs. Michel and I talked to João about the challenges of running a small meteorology business, how he transferred from academia to entrepreneurship, and his advice for any meteorologist interesting in starting their own small business.
