More about Katrin

Our first investor is Pan-African

After having declined the generous offers of countless Western funders for over a decade, our rigorous approach ultimately paid off. (B)energy's first investor had to be African. With NJ Ayuk and his teams of Centurion Law group, the African Energy Chamber, the Germany Africa Business Forum as well as the Emerging Energy Corporation we have invaluable partners who strengthen und support (B)energy in so many ways. And it gives us the legitimacy to continue with our independent, aid-free business approach. We are very honored to now continue together!
