💭 DID YOU KNOW? Solar & Wind Jobs Grew 12 Times Faster Than The US Economy!!! 💭 REPORT: (link to article in our bio) In yet another indication that the clean energy revolution is well underway, a new report finds that solar and wind jobs are growing 12 times as fast as rest of the U.S. economy. These jobs have grown by about 20 percent annually in recent years. . The report from the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) notes that renewable energy jobs, totaling about 769,000 by the end of 2015, experienced “a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 6% since 2012,” while “fossil fuel extraction and support services slumped, with a -4.25% CAGR over the same period.” . Market forces are driving this phenomenon, due to dramatic reductions in manufacturing and installation costs, coupled with stagnant demand for oil and coal. Unsubsidized solar is now as cheap as coal and natural gas and even wind in emerging markets, and solar prices will continue to rapidly fall. .

💭 @Akon Has Done More for Africans in One Year Than Most Charities Have Done in Decades! 🙌 REPORT: Across the African continent, more than 600 million African people still live without access to electricity, and 3.5 million people die each year from inhaling toxic fuels or house fires caused while trying to light their homes. . Realizing that access to electricity is one of the key components to increasing the quality of life, rap superstar, and Senegal transplant, Akon decided to take action last year. . As the Guardian reported at the launch of their project in 2015, Akon and his two co-founders — Thione Niang, a Senegalese political activist, and Samba Bathily, a Malian entrepreneur and CEO of the solar energy company Solektra International — believe that what rural African communities need is not overseas charity but affordable renewable energy delivered by fully trained African professionals, managing for-profit projects that bring longevity, generate jobs and build new self-sustaining economies. . They think this initiative could mark the beginning of an African energy renaissance in which the continent becomes the focal point of a global solar power industry. . They were right. . In less than one year, according to the charity group Akon Lighting Africa, a wide range of quality solar solutions, including street lamps, domestic and individual kits, have been installed in 14 African countries. . As a result, a number of households, villages, community houses, schools and health centers located in rural areas have been connected to electricity for the first time ever.

Black Female CEO Raises $7 Million For Her Tech Startup - blogged by @avah_taylor - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JessicaMatthews has become the 13th Black female founder of a tech company to have raised more than $1 million in outside investment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Matthews is the founder and CEO of UncharteredPlay, a renewable energy tech startup that raised $7 million in Series A funding from the NIC Fund, Kapor Capital, Magic Johnson Enterprises, BBG Ventures and Lingo Ventures, according to TechCrunch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Startups typically go through a series of investment rounds from venture capital firms (external investors). Series A funding is the first round of financing a startup receives when it does not require seed money. In this round, investors may take a 30% to 50% stake in the company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TechCrunch reported that Uncharted Play plans to use the new round of funding to expand its staff and finance future partnerships. The company's main products are a soccer ball that doubles as a generator and a jump rope that doubles as a light. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Matthews' venture deal is significant in an industry where Black women on average received only $36,000 in outside funding between 2012 to 2014, according to a report by ProjectDiane.: Black Female CEO Raises $7 Million For Her Tech Startup blogged by: @avah taylor @balleralert Black Female CEO Raises $7 Million For Her Tech Startup - blogged by @avah_taylor - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JessicaMatthews has become the 13th Black female founder of a tech company to have raised more than $1 million in outside investment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Matthews is the founder and CEO of UncharteredPlay, a renewable energy tech startup that raised $7 million in Series A funding from the NIC Fund, Kapor Capital, Magic Johnson Enterprises, BBG Ventures and Lingo Ventures, according to TechCrunch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Startups typically go through a series of investment rounds from venture capital firms (external investors).
