BECOME A PROJECT DEVELOPMENT ADVISOR
Hello, fellow volunteer! We're thrilled that you're willing to donate some of your time to further Energy Generation's mission! Energy Generation's goal is to empower African entrepreneurs with the skills and opportunities to solve African problems. To do this, we rely on the generous help of some very smart and capable people, and if you're willing, we'd love to talk!
We are looking for volunteers for our Project Development Advisor (PDA) program. Project Development Advisors are engineers, creators, and product developers with skills and experience who can help our incubated entrepreneurs create real products that serve their customers and communities. PDAs work closely with African entrepreneurs to advise and support them in the product development process. They also share their skills and experience to solve real-world engineering problems and support African entrepreneurs.
Does this sound like you?
MEET OUR CURRENT ADVISORS
Engineer + Venture Capital
I started volunteering with Energy Generation in October 2020 for a few hours a week. At first I was helping out by supporting the English Language club, as well as helping translate some of the Engineering lectures.
Then, in March 2021 I went out to the Lomé campus where I led the Engineering/Design lectures, and got involved in a large number of projects. While out there I had the privilege to work with a number of entrepreneurs in the EG network, helping them with their prototypes and sharing my experience in venture capital and startups.
After three months in Togo I came back to the UK where I still volunteer with EG a few hours a week! It's really great to be able to put my Engineering skills to great use, pass on what I've learnt, while helping and learning from another culture!
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ROLE OF A PDA
THE PDA NETWORK
Our Project Development Advisor network is how we connect skilled Engineers and Project Developers from around the World to African Entrepreneurs who need support and advice. Each Energy Generation Entrepreneur is connected to a PDA to gain insights, advice, and support as they build their ideas into problem-solving products.
Each PDA brings with them their own skills and specialties, but their primary role is to help ferment the product development process on the system level, and instil an Engineering mindset to their Entrepreneurs.
Are you a skilled Engineer/Product Developer, and are you ready to contribute to the growth of a nation?
