Many people in the world remain without access to the internet, due to a lack of infrastructure or high costs.
BuffaloGrid is a mobile power and internet service for the off-grid world, using solar energy, innovative technology, and a cashless payment system to provide end-to-end accountability and power where it’s needed most. Cashless payments help reduce corruption in the system, while billing and promotion become possible through BuffaloGrid’s transparent virtual payment system. The service is locally run by our network of agents who dispense power to their communities, receiving a percentage of each charge as income in return.
Raised £1M via crowdfunding in 2021, and secured partnerships to distribute their products to support displaced communities in Kenya and Uganda.
