Providing affordable zero-waste power and Internet in Sub Saharan Africa

Jan '16 - Present (5 years)

Amazing things Juan's made
Launched a socially driven business focused on providing affordable solar power and Internet to off grid communities in Sub Saharan Africa, starting with Kenya. The innovation lies in being a hardware integrator and combining multiple revenue streams, such as the Wi-Fi provision and remittances processing, to offset the cost of the electricity. Unilever and DfID have invested in the pilot, to be deployed in April 2017
