Experience
SOLARKIOSK • Germany

Founder / CEO

2011 - Present (8 years, 5 months)
SOLARKIOSK is the last mile distribution hub and renewable energy-connectivity gateway to untapped markets at the Base-of-the-Pyramid (BoP).

I co-founded SOLARKIOSK together with my friends from GRAFT architects (www.graftlab.com) in 2010. We incorporated the company in 2011 and are currently active in 12 countries with 250 projects operating in 2018, directly and indirectly employing more than 1,000 people, most of them in Africa. It´s tough, but it´s a lot of fun, and - most importantly: it makes sense.
