Moses Sanga, the head of Eco-Fuel Africa, a company that makes biochar, a charcoal made from agricultural waste, came to the Unreasonable Institute in a slightly different position from nearly all the other attendees. While his company was up and running, he didn’t have a business plan, and he didn’t even know what he needed to do to break even.
But with the help of the Institute’s mentors, Sanga now has Eco-Fuel Africa on steady footing and is confident he can bring clean energy to Africa. He’s also flown on a plane, eaten a Popsicle, and used a washing machine for the first time. But that’s all icing on the cake. Unsurprisingly, you don’t need the developed world to develop a genius business idea.
This is the latest video in The Unreasonables, a series tracking the participants in the most recent Unreasonable Institute. To see what’s coming up, watch a preview of the whole season and see a list of all the episodes here.
