Thanks so much for helping us reach our $100,000 goal on Kickstarter! http://kck.st/LP5NjI . We're excited that YOUR support has enabled us to hire two people and open an office to expand into Rwanda. Rwanda, here we come!

Great story in WIRED's Gadget Lab! Thanks, Mat Honan. Check it out for more insight into Fenix, Mike and Brian's decision to start to company, our work in Africa, and our goals with our Kickstarter. 

"It blasted past its fundraising goal in just a day, but while it’s new here in the States, it’s been juicing phones, laptops and even lightbulbs by the thousands in Africa for more than a year. But it doesn’t just generate electricity — it also fuels the incomes of a growing number of entrepreneurs, farmers and mobile bankers."
The ReadySet is a power-generation tool designed for the developing world to help small-scale entrepreneurs earn a living as micro utilities. It's now available in the United States via Kickstarter.

Access to power and communications is important to all of us. New York City area residents are currently coping with Hurricane Sandy much the same way the 1.3 billion people who have no access to electricity in the rest of the world do on a regular basis.
