"Over hurdles to success" could be the life motto of American exceptional athlete, Olympic champion and world record holder Edwin Moses. After all, he developed his own running style, trained relentlessly and dominated the 400-meter hurdles discipline for nearly two decades with his focus, elegance and speed. With this performance, he electrified the entire world. The races against the German European champion Harald Schmid, in particular, were legendary. Now Edwin Moses competes for Germany – and Africa.
As an advocate for clean sport, the world-famous Olympic legend has entered into a collaboration with the German scale-up enterprise Africa Greentec AG. Symbolically, the "clean sport to sustainable energy solutions" hurdle was quickly crossed. The social enterprise's holistic approach sparked the enthusiasm of Dr. Edwin Moses, a physics graduate and business and finance consultant.
On the occasion of the preparations for the Series B crowdfunding campaign, he recently visited the Africa GreenTec Office in the Impact Hub Berlin. Edwin Moses sees an enormous but underestimated growth market in Africa and is convinced that Africa GreenTec, as a pioneer for sustainable energy solutions, is ideally equipped to overcome the hurdle to success for and with the African continent. However, he is convinced that action must be taken quickly, because the war in Ukraine and the resulting energy and hunger crises have consequences for Africa in particular and threaten to lead to catastrophes. It is also for these reasons that Edwin Moses supports the Series B financing round that has just been launched, as well as the associated crowdinvesting campaign of the scale-up.
