Billionaire businessman and philanthropist Manoj Bhargava was taught early in life that the wealthy have a duty to help those that don’t have the resources to sustain themselves. These words never left Bhargava as he successfully built his business empire. The founder of the Five-hour Energy drink has now turned his attention to bringing energy to the billions that do not have it.
Bhargava says “every single one of us has the same basic needs. Lights, health and water. But a third of the world has no electricity, how can we get electricity to their homes? How can we bring light to billions of people?”
The solution was simple ‘invent stuff’.
To meet the challenge of lighting up the villages Bhargava turned to his invention shop Stage 2, in Farmington Hills, Michigan (USA). The engineers turned their minds to creating a set of solutions that would deliver free electricity to villages. Their answer: the HANS PowerPack, HANS Solar BriefCase and the HANS Free Electric Bike.
