PROJECT WITH MEANING
We want to solve real problems and work on projects that have meaning. This is why we are entrepreneurs.
We had the privilege of a top education and never lacked anything. As a personal philosophy, we believe in giving back.
1.3 billion people in the world live without electricity, and they all are well aware that this is not right. They demand what all of us take for granted.
STATES ARE HELPLESS
In Benin and many other developing countries, the State does not have the resources to address that demand in a reasonable timeframe. Populations should not have to wait.
NGOs ARE OUTGUNNED
For decades, NGOs have tried to solve this issue. But the number of people lacking electricity has not decreased. An entrepreneurial approach can change the game.
BIG CORPORATIONS ARE BEYOND CONFUSED
Big companies do not have a clue of what should be done, other than distributing solar gadgets or implementing one-shot projects for PR purposes.
POWER:ON IS ON A MISSION
We can win because we are independent, passionate and we know that care is more important than technicalities. We do not build minigrids for the sake of it, but because we want to trigger development and make the lives of rural people easier.
Africa’s challenges should not be belittled, but we will certainly not ignore the progress that has been made. What we do takes courage and determination. We will not tolerate fatalism, desolation or self-pity. Life is hard, be harder.
