Innovation Africa & Water Availability

Bring in Israeli solar panels and drip irrigation. Pump water from the large reservoirs below. Cost $7,000.

Adapting to community: 6-8 weeks on committees, bank accounts; mobile charging stations and barbershops using solar panels for sustainability. Can’t sell the water, but you can subsidize it with complementary products.

Set up remote monitoring with real time stats in order to schedule maintenance.

Honorable Mentions

Push Party by MSCHF is valued at $200m, led by The Founders Fund.

I thought the Founders Fund wanted to make the world a better place? I hope this is one big joke.
