IRVINE, CA, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Broadside Enterprises, Inc. (OTC: BRSE) ("Broadside" or the "Company") today announced that its Ventures Division is exploring several opportunities in Africa in solar energy and other natural resources including the mining of gold and diamonds.
As an initial investment, the Company is in advanced discussions with Léono Solar Solutions (www.leonosolutions.com) to invest in a unique energetic infrastructure concept which calls for the construction of 10 villages of 1,000 homes with solar panel roofs across Africa commencing in Benin.
The project was conceived by Sègbédji Parfait Aïhounhin, CAP, BACC, DUEEG, LCs, MCs, MC, DESS, Research Assistant at the University of Laval in Québec, and will be realized through the leadership of Richard Desgagné, CEO of Léono, Inc.
"In terms of population growth and economic growth, Africa is one of the greatest opportunities in the world and each of its sectors will require a stable power supply. Solar energy is an obvious choice," said Broadside's CEO Christopher Petzel, "and in terms of natural resources, Africa is one of the wealthiest continents in the world."
It is Broadside's corporate philosophy to engage in Africa and elsewhere in a socially and ecologically responsible manner. For this purpose, the Company will seek to partner with international and local charitable organizations.
