NEW YORK, Nov. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wall Street Reporter, the trusted name in financial news since 1843, has published reports on the latest comments and insights from leaders at: Skillz, Inc. (NYSE: SKLZ), ESE Entertainment (TSX.V: ESE) (OTC: ENTEF), Organic Garage (OTC: OGGFF) (TSX.V: OG) and Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK).

Electric vehicles, plant-based foods, and e-sports are today’s most exciting growth sectors, and positioned to generate trillions of dollars in combined revenues in the decade ahead. Wall Street Reporter highlights the latest comments from industry thought leaders:

Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) CEO: MIchael Farkas: “EV Charging is Exponential Growth Opportunity - and We’re Aggressively Scaling”
“...Location is the key for our chargers as more individual drivers and fleets, transition to greener transportation, and we prepare the charging infrastructure that will be necessary as utilization increases. We continue to make solid progress of securing locations in high density, high volume venues like hotels, multi-family residential, mixed use facilities and healthcare networks….We believe our industry is poised for exponential growth and we are aggressively scaling our business, not just here in the United States, but around the world to ensure that we are in the best position to capitalize on the long-term opportunities associated with the global progression to EVUs. As the world transitions to driving EVUs, Blink can prepare the way by providing our chargers as a key component to what will be a much in-demand infrastructure, the national infrastructure charging stations around the world…”

“... We remain intently focused on our owner operator model. This is an important direction for our business. We enter into long-term exclusive contracts with automatic extensions that employ a revenue sharing model in which we receive payment each time a vehicle is charged at one of our Blink own units. We sell the fuel. With this structure we have the potential to generate a valuable reoccurring revenue stream for many years to come as EV utilization increases. Our property owner partners also benefit from this model because we take care of the installation and maintenance of Blink owned units, which is often in a very attractive option for property management companies, who literally have just so many other responsibilities on their plates...This is a pivotal time to be a leader in the EV charging industry. The shift to EVs is inevitable and Blink is poised for significant growth as we play a key role providing the infrastructure to support this transition….”
