ThinkBiz Africa Small Business Centres that generate income and support education

ThinkBiz Africa

Our Company, ThinkBiz Africa, is building a network of Small Business (SBiz) Centres that generates income and supports education in underserved communities.

Our revenue-generating infrastructure is solar-powered Small Business (SBiz) Centres, which electrify rural villages, expand educational opportunities, and deliver a variety of complimentary products and services. To create these Centres, we combined our most advanced knowledge delivery system with two proven revenue-generating systems. The first is a solar-powered convenience store by SOLARKIOSK, and the second is a solar-powered micro-grid built by i4SD.

Idea

We have an elevator pitch. We plan to execute a proven concept in a growing market.

We leverage solar power to provide a range of products and services at low prices. This includes a range of consumer products and services such as clean water, electricity, mobile phone air-time and educational content via WiFi. Revenues will increase over time as complementary businesses are added via a shopping centre model.

Currently, we know of no one else combining solar micro-grid, retail store, communication system, and an education eLibrary in one centre. We expect to be “first to market” in the villages where we install our SBiz Centres.

Revenue

We plan to start by building a community of passionate customers. We plan to monetise our offering in the next phase.

Our target market are residents of rural Africa. We estimate one SBiz Centre for every 7k people; there are about 695m people in rural Africa now. This translates to a Total Available Market of about 99k Centres; subsequently, we estimate that the serviceable obtainable market is about 15k. Within 6 months of operation, we expect the revenues of a SBiz Centre to be greater than $2,000/mo.
