  • GoSun CEO Patrick Sherwin: An Entrepreneur Environmentalist

    Success comes with luck. Does it?

    GoSun CEO Patrick Sherwin has always been interested in entrepreneurship. Looking back to his early days, Sherwin was a passionate kid. At a young age, he started a small business under a tree selling clay pots and herbal remedies to his neighborhood.

    Later, as Patrick grew up, he also started a lawn mowing business and other ventures. But how exactly did he become so concerned for the environment?

    Sherwin was not even a teenager when he first realized the human impact on nature. One day, when he and his team were cleaning a backyard creek (a natural stream of water), a neighborhood kid directly dumped his automobile oil in the creek.

  • The creek meant a lot to Patrick, who then made a mission to conserve the environment with innovative ideas. Therefore, his love for nature directed him to his current career path as an entrepreneur environmentalist.

    Talking about Patrick’s education, he joined Virginia Tech University to study Mechanical Engineering in 1996. But, he opted out of the program to study Environmental Biology at Ohio University. Sherwin graduated in 2001.

    However, Patrick will not stop; he is trying to bring new innovations and inventions to make their products more environmentally friendly. Sherwin said in an interview that he is charged up and ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

    “With all the climate change and turmoil in our world, we have an uphill battle to validate the power of solar energy in our lives, but cooking without burning is a great place to start.”
