LONDON, March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BBOXX – a next generation utility – will present at CleanEquity® Monaco 2018 on 8th & 9th March at the Fairmont Monte Carlo.
CleanEquity® is an annual invitation-only event hosted by Innovator Capital, the London based specialist investment bank. The conference provides an intimate and collegiate setting for inventors and entrepreneurs to share their stories with delegates - key decision makers looking to assist them with reaching their commercial and strategic goals.

BBOXX has been identified by an expert panel as one of the world's most innovative sustainable technology companies and has been selected to present to selected sovereign, corporate, family and professional investors & acquires, policy makers, end users and international trade media.
BBOXX is making a big impact in Africa and the developing world with its smart solar systems, driven by a mission to provide energy to 20 million people by 2020.
BBOXX believes that there is an opportunity to leapfrog straight to smarter solutions, using solar power and pioneering technology to bypass expensive traditional grid infrastructure, and to provide an on-grid experience to communities living in an off-grid setting, powering economic growth and transforming lives.
BBOXX recently launched Pulse – a cloud-based task management platform, which enables distributed businesses to improve efficiency and enhance customer service. Pulse overcomes many of the big obstacles that distributed energy companies experience in Africa, for example managing customers, products and employees that are spread out across remote locations.
In addition, BBOXX and Bamboo Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on positive social and financial value, recently launched BEAM – a first of its kind pioneering platform set to revolutionise access to energy for millions in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. BEAM breaks down the financial barriers to energy access and will aid the growth of various off-grid energy service companies.
BBOXX already operates in 35 countries, mainly in East Africa, with large operations in Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and most recently Togo. BBOXX began its operations in Togo in 2017 after winning a government contract to roll out 300,000 off-grid solar home systems across the country – and recently this initiative received a significant boost following the completion of a pioneering debt finance deal worth US$4 million with local bank Union Togolaise de Banque (UTB).
Mansoor Hamayun, CEO of BBOXX will be speaking at 11:55am on Thursday 8th March about how data and technology such as Pulse can be used to expand energy access in Africa on a vast scale.
BBOXX is a venture backed next generation utility, developing solutions to provide affordable, clean energy to off-grid communities in the developing world.
BBOXX is fully vertically integrated, controlling every part of its customer experience. Its market leading products and appliances coupled with our SMART Solar platform bring machine-learning and customer experience optimisation to rural Africa. Ground-breaking financing structure has brought off-grid solar into the world's financial markets.
With over 150,000 systems deployed so far; 450 staff across 5 offices in China, UK and East Africa are waking up every morning to work with BBOXX to electrify 20 million people by 2020.
