Podcast: Nauticus Robotics Founder/CEO Nic Radford & CleanTech’s CEO Eli Spiro
by Kristi Marvin on 2022-07-06 at 7:36am

This week, we speak with Nic Radford, Founder and CEO of Nauticus Robotics and Eli Spiro, CEO of CleanTech Acquisition Corp (Nasdaq: CLAQ).

The two announced a $377 million dollar combination agreement in December of 2021.

Leveraging experience developing robotics for use in space for NASA, Nic and his team are deploying a fleet of state-of-the-art underwater robots that can perform inspection and maintenance tasks on energy installations, ports and telecom infrastructure among other use cases.

He talks about how Nauticus’ robot-as-a-service business model has potential to disrupt the $30 billion market the company is attacking.

And Eli also gets into what it has been like on the inside of a SPAC search process under current market conditions and how he put his Goldman Sachs experience to use.
