Where Stanford Engineering, Local Knowledge and Innovation Meet


Ugwem Eneyo
Co-Founder & CEO


Cole Stites-Clayton
Co-Founder & CTO


Tyler Davis
Principal Software Engineer

As Stanford graduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering, founders Ugwem and Cole spent their days and nights coding and building models that can design and seamlessly operate nano- and microgrids in emerging markets. As a Nigerian-American, Ugwem was well aware of the energy challenges facing her family and millions of other in Nigeria and around the world. With Cole's background in Engineers Without Borders, the two embarked on creating real-world solutions that could drive sustainable development in emerging markets at the nexus of energy and environment. Joined by Tyler, a Stanford alumna and software engineer, the team and their advisors are working to change the energy landscape in emerging markets.
