New mem­ber of Startup|Energy Africa: Sinoware

A pio­neer in the solar indus­try sup­ports the start­up scene in East Africa as a new mem­ber of Startup|Energy: The Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­er Sinoware is one of the first com­pa­nies to devel­op and pro­duce pro­fes­sion­al solu­tions for off-grid regions in Africa and Asia.


The Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg and the Solar Ener­gy Foun­da­tion (Freiburg) have launched the Startup|Energy ini­tia­tive to pro­mote region­al and inter­na­tion­al exchange between star­tups in the field of decen­tral­ized, renew­able ener­gy sup­ply in D‑A-CH and East Africa.

The Solar Ener­gy Foun­da­tion is respon­si­ble for the imple­men­ta­tion of the Start­up Accel­er­a­tor in Africa. Startup|Energy focus­es (ini­tial­ly) on the start­up scene in the coun­tries of the East African Com­mu­ni­ty: Burun­di, Kenya, Rwan­da, South Sudan, Tan­za­nia, Ugan­da. There is a net­work of part­ners who sup­port the Startup|Energy initiative.

The first Ener­gy Camp East Africa is cur­rent­ly tak­ing place: five select­ed ener­gy star­tups are receiv­ing coach­ing from sub­ject mat­ter experts. A work­shop will be held in Kam­pala from 27–29 Sep­tem­ber to refine the busi­ness mod­els. At the final Startup|Energy Award, the star­tups present them­selves to a jury of inter­na­tion­al investors and experts. The best start-up con­cepts are award­ed with attrac­tive prizes.

The main spon­sors of the Ener­gy Camp East Africa are GIZ and GET.invest.
