Toledo OH: August 16, 2016: STEM DRC Initiative CEO Sandrine Mubenga will present a keynote address titled “Electricity Is Life” at the second annual Sultani Makutano business networking event in the city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC) on September 16-17, 2016.
Mubenga’s presentation will share a vision to accelerate social and economic development in the region using Solar Energy, Green Energy, and Renewable Energy. Available technologies and sustainable practices create beneficial social and humanitarian outcomes when electrification is implemented in remote or under-served regions.
“Access to modern education, health care, the internet, and economic opportunities in a local or global market all depend on reliable electricity. But in the DRC, 90% of the population does not have electricity. Even where purportedly available, electricity may be supplied sporadically, unpredictably, or only for a few hours each day. Our solutions can change that trend. ”
ABOUT THE EVENT: The 2nd Annual Sultani Makutano business networking event in Kinshasa is sponsored by the Pan-African Business Network. Hundreds of African men and women, entrepreneurs, business executives, public sector leaders, artists and scholars, all based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will participate in networking and high level workshops intended to connect the new generation of entrepreneurs with established business leaders and decision makers. In recent years, a new generation of local and international entrepreneurs have noticed the immense potential of the DRC and have made significant investments in the country’s economic future. This event will allow them to make connections to continue to grow their businesses. The event will take place at the Sultani HOTEL, located on L’Avenue de la Justice in Kinshasa.
