We build the capacity of entrepreneurs to close the energy access gap in their communities through clean technology and innovative business models.

Access to energy is critical for economic prosperity, educational opportunity, and environmental stewardship. By extending access to electricity and other energy services through increasing technology and financing options to these entrepreneurs, their communities can become more productive, generate income, and reach their full potential
