Working with energy-related startups for the last four years brought us enormous amount of knowledge and experience. But not only that. It gave us a chance to meet some of the most innovative people and get to help their businesses grow.
In our very first meetup we would like to introduce you to Daniel Becker, the CEO of Rafiki Power. Sharing the idea that decentralized energy solutions are the core of the energy industry, he will explain what mini-grid development and operation actually means. This could be challenging, especially, when your business is operating in a country very far away – Tanzania.
