Having initiated its on-the-ground operations in Rwanda 13 years ago, Bboxx currently provides electricity to over 10% of households in the country, diversifying its offerings to include various essential services and products. The company has also expanded its footprint into 11 African markets.
Francis Gatare, CEO of the Rwanda Development Board, expressed his approval, stating, "Bboxx’s decision to relocate its headquarters to Kigali is a welcome decision and aligns with our efforts for Rwanda as a magnet for smart, sustainable investments. Our unique ecosystem offers fertile ground for companies like Bboxx to innovate and expand, signaling to the world that Rwanda is open for business and ready for the future."
Positioning at the Core of Africa’s Energy Industry
The move to Rwanda places Bboxx at the epicenter of Africa’s rapidly evolving energy and technology sectors, enhancing its access to crucial markets.
Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and co-founder of Bboxx, commented on the strategic relocation, stating, "In our journey to revolutionize access to essential products and services across Africa, it’s only fitting that we position ourselves at the heart of the continent. This move to Kigali not only brings us closer to the communities we serve but also cements our commitment to be an Africa-first, data-driven super platform, transforming lives and unlocking potential at an unprecedented scale."
This relocation is part of a series of recent developments for Bboxx, including its partnership with EnerTech, expansion into Burkina Faso, and securing a loan to accelerate clean electrification delivery in Togo.
