Bboxx provides reliable, renewable electricity to more than a million people living off-grid in the developing world, with its pay-as-you-go solar power systems offering a cleaner, cheaper alternative to kerosene. During the pandemic, it is continuing to ensure that users have access to the energy they need via a “crisis energy” scheme, which enables customers in Togo, Rwanda and Kenya to get bonus days of energy for free when paying up-front. It operates in 35 countries and last year raised $50m, led by Mitsubishi, to expand in Africa. Founders Mansoor Hamayun, 31, Laurent Van Houcke, 32, and Christopher Baker-Brian, 33, oversaw sales of £17.9m last year.
