Our approach

We believe that local entrepreneurs will create solar energy companies that will power the developing world. We provide these entrepreneurs with the technical, financial, and strategic input to make their solar energy companies successful and impactful.

Our first company, SunFarmer Nepal, was launched in 2014 and has constructed over 200 innovative solar energy installations across Nepal.


First, we identified countries with significant energy challenges (lack of access, or high costs) and promising pools of entrepreneurial talent.



Second, we selected a founding team to launch SunFarmer Nepal as a company.


We then identified the right solar product for the market. We provided technical, financial, and management support
for the founding team.


Finally, we established a local board composed of prominent mentors and business luminaries in-country to provide ongoing mentorship and support.
