We asked Luszol founder Roberto Baldizon, about building an app that connects users with post electrical and energy-related project needs to energy experts. Roberto majored in Energy Business and Finance and minored in Energy Engineering at Penn State. He chose Bubble because the no-code platform offers a reliable database and all the necessary features to quickly and efficiently build an app.

Tell us about your app and what it does.

Luszol is an energy company that brings reliable power to people, adapted to their locale so that they can enjoy greater energy resiliency, independence. and security.

How does your app work?

The company services its customer base through a plethora of services. This app allows customers to post electrical and energy-related project needs so that experts can help them with them. Experts who join Luszol in this mission will also sell and promote their services to reach a larger customer base.

Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.

I am originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala, but I have traveled extensively through my life, living in Germany and completing most of my education in the United States, for which I consider myself a truly global citizen. Thus I speak Spanish, English, and German, as well as other programming languages, such as Python, Javascript, and C#, among others, but those are not as useful when ordering original food or drinks when traveling.

I went to Penn State for college, where I graduated with a major in Energy Business and Finance and minors in Energy Engineering, Mining Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. I continued my education by attending post-graduate courses at Georgetown, INCAE, and a coding Bootcamp at UC Berkeley. I am a fierce believer in continuous education and lifelong learning. I have taken several courses from Harvard Business School, Harvard Medical School online, and advanced Data Science and AI ones at Columbia Engineering Online.

After college, I worked in an oil-producing company in Belize, doing engineering and finance projects until going back to Guatemala to help out my family in their businesses. I have worked in the retail, wholesale, hospitality, and healthcare industries in Guatemala before starting my entrepreneurial projects. In 2016 I began Luszol, a Miami-based energy company that started as a solar project installer and has pivoted to a clean-tech energy company developing novel business models to provide value to the world's people.

I found out about bubble through my friends who are also developers and started searching for options to stop repeating themselves while coding apps and making products faster while still cost-efficient and reliable.

Why did you build your app on Bubble?

This app was built on Bubble for the reliability of the database and all structures encompassing it. By building through Bubble, we could do it quickly, adding more services to the company while keeping our focus and attention on our core business and technical objectives.

What have been your milestones or successes so far?

The app has been deployed and has received great feedback from others. Through an offline process similar to that applied in the app, the company has been able to service numerous small businesses in Central America, providing them with a reliable power alternative for a region in significant need of it.

What are your next steps or future plans for your app?

We plan on implementing the app furtherly in our local markets by improving the design, enabling a Spanish version, and simplifying the number of services and products offered so that the target market and company offering are better selected and clearer to set ourselves well for growth.
