MISSION & VISION
At Energy Generation we are convinced that African youth have the potential to solve the most pressing challenges of their generation (access to clean and sustainable energy, food security and access to health for all), in one generation. We want to encourage entrepreneurial projects led by young Africans and promote innovative technological solutions “made in Africa” and adapted to the continent.
- IMPACTS -
Supporting the youth by training them and providing them essential tools to develop their entrepreneurial projects.
Contributing to the emergence and development of an entrepreneurial spirit among the African youth, often left without satisfactory professional perspectives.
ACCESS TO ENERGY
Thanks to the resources and ingenuity of our project holders, we will be able to provide electrification solutions at lower costs, which have direct and indirect positive impacts at several levels.
In 2013, Astria Fataki and four other students from Sciences Po Paris founded "Lighting a Billion Lives France", an association dedicated to rural electrification, inspired by a TERI program in India. After working in Niger, Mali and Congo, installing solar-powered micro-power plants, the association has adopted a paradigm shift.
In January 2016, it moved to a model based on "made in Africa" technological innovations. and the entrepreneurial spirit of young people, becoming Energy Generation. In order to promote both innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit, the association opened its first training center in October 2016, the Energy Generation Academy Lomé.
Our programs combine training, incubation and investment readiness to help promising entrepreneurs scale their business by accessing market and funding opportunities.
The final objective is to provide a comprehensive follow-up of innovative projects produced by young Africans and ensure their success.
Energy Generation is working on the development of a seed fund.
Our wish is to create this tool for entrepreneurs trained and supported by EG, in order to reduce risks, facilitate due diligence work, and thus be able to finance these entrepreneurs almost systematically.

Enriching our program
The first two classes proved the program was fairly built, but we are looking to enrich it, by developing partnership with prestigious institutions and renown companies across the world.
Energy Generation has a splendid team working together, but still needs more people to join the revolution! We are looking for education professionals, interns and volunteers to help us grow!
Expanding our team
Developing our infrastructure
We are looking forward to extend our project, starting with the development of our infrastructures. Thus, at the very beginning of the year, we moved to the Tech Hub, a technology campus dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and creativity in Togo. Our entrepreneurs will therefore be able to evolve in an inspiring place that offers all the necessary equipment and worthy of their projects.
Do you want to participate in solving the most important challenges of our time by joining a young and dynamic team in a fast-growing pan-African organization?
