Picture this, you’re five years old and your mom is cooking dinner, like she does every night. Suddenly the air around your home is filled with screams and gunfire.
Robert Kabera, Stanford graduate, co-founder, and COO of Sync Energy A.I., survived the 1994 Rwandan Genocide with his family by hiding in tunnels, evading soldiers, and spending six years in refugee camps.
But what would you do if after graduating from one of America’s most prestigious universities, you discovered that 90% of Africa is not banked and that many of the people there were living off of the energy grid? Would you decide to ignore the problems of your home continent and focus on the USA? Or would you launch business after business aimed at helping people in various African countries and find yourself on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in the energy sector?
