Sendea enables solar entrepreneurs:

  • to build their solar company and let it grow
  • to create sustainable jobs
  • to provide sustainable off-grid solutions for rural customers

We are working as a network with fellows in Africa and Asia, building the
"solar entrepreneurs network for decentralized energy access": Sendea.
