Serial cleantech entrepreneur with an academic background in climate change science and solar energy. It's pretty obvious to me that the solution to addressing climate change is to transition the world away from fossil fuels and into solar power, the most flexible, affordable and accessible source of renewable energy.
Having founded and recently exited from Sun Exchange, one of Africa's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies, I have now joined Cloudline, a company bringing solar powered airships to connect billions of people in emerging markets with access to affordable aerial services.
I have a winning combination of 15+ years of global business development experience in the cleantech sector and an irrepressible passion for harnessing groundbreaking technologies as a force for good.
Oh, and I am also starting a global solar powered airship racing league called Lite Racing to accelerate our understanding of lighter than air aerial transport.
