David Amster-Olszewski ’09 didn’t grow up thinking about solar energy, but during his four years at Colorado College, it became the thing that excited him the most. In 2011, Amster-Olszewski started a renewable energy company called SunShare, which has solar gardens that “grow” energy for business and residential utilities customers in Colorado Springs. At the time that he started the company, he didn’t have an office, so he signed the formation agreements in Tutt Library, which was fitting, because CC was one of SunShare’s first customers.

Amster-Olszewski ’09 was recently featured in CC’s Faces of Innovation.
