WHO WE ARE
a bunch of mangos. full of fresh ideas.
mango solar is a clean-tech, social start-up project emerging from University of Neu-Ulm, based in Neu-Ulm 🇩🇪 and Nairobi 🇰🇪. We’re 3 co-founders and 6 supporting team members with a work culture based on agility, solution orientation and passion. Complemented by regular team-building trips, company cooking and hackathons.
Our vision is to make a huge social and environmental impact with products that are made to last – and fun to use! Powering digital transformation in African homes through solar energy enables millions of people to access financing, education, health and any other digital service – opening the door to transforming lives. Without frontiers.
Funded by 2 German start-up grants since 2018, we’ve been putting all our energy and 🧡 into building up internal structures and developing our first solar systems and financing software. We’ve explored our first target market Kenya in cooperation with public institutions and our prototypes are being tested in a pilot run in Mwea – Kenya’s “rice region” – since November 2018.
Any questions? Ideas? Investment interests?
Our website is still in progress. We will feed it with some more info in the next weeks.
