Rural Spark launched its first official crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. We believe every is a fundamental right for everybody in this world. We believe this can be achieved by young, dynamic companies which build elegant solutions. Crowdfunding is the modern financing tool that fits our believes.
From the outset, we have set ourselves the ambitious task to build energy solutions that facilitate access to energy in regions that are deprived of this fundamental right. We have already celebrated many achievements over the last few years and today we are proud to announce that we are scaling up!
