About Energy Generation
We are Shaping the Future of Humanity by Shaping the Future of Energy in Africa.
In order to do so, Energy Generation supports young Africans in addressing their generation’s challenges through entrepreneurship and technological innovation, focusing on access to energy issues.
In November 2019, we implemented the Business & Energy School, delivering high-standard graduate courses on entrepreneurship in the energy sector, and the Solar Entrepreneurship Program both relying on brand new incubation and investment readiness programs to help promising entrepreneurs scale their businesses through access to market and funding opportunities.
Energy Generation is focused on creating the best possible environment in which early-stage energy companies can grow and succeed.
This therefore is a unique and highly rewarding opportunity to join an exceptionally motivated and dedicated team and to work with high potential African young entrepreneurs.
