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?

Engineer + Venture Capital

J'ai commencé à faire du bénévolat pour Energy Generation en octobre 2020, à raison de quelques heures par semaine. Au début, je donnais un coup de main au club d'anglais et j'aidais à traduire certains cours d'ingénierie.

Puis, en mars 2021, je me suis rendu sur le campus de Lomé où j'ai animé les cours d'ingénierie et de conception, et me suis impliqué dans un grand nombre de projets. Pendant mon séjour, j'ai eu le privilège de travailler avec un certain nombre d'entrepreneurs du réseau EG, en les aidant avec leurs prototypes et en partageant mon expérience du capital-risque et des start-ups.

Après trois mois au Togo, je suis rentré au Royaume-Uni où je suis toujours bénévole pour EG quelques heures par semaine ! C'est vraiment génial de pouvoir mettre à profit mes compétences en ingénierie, de transmettre ce que j'ai appris, tout en aidant et en apprenant d'une autre culture !

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?
