Power a Life
Our values are a massive driving force in the work and projects we do at GearedApp. We want to build a technologically connected world that’s accessible, inclusive, secure, healthy and socially aware. That’s why Tech for Good lies at the heart of our company DNA.
We’ve created a video series where Director Josh Carson chats with values-led business owners and discusses what Tech for Good means to them.
In this episode, we have a conversation with Jeremie Warner, Founder of Power a Life. They’re a buy-one-give-one company that provides solar lights and other essential learning resources to children across Africa.
Providing Portable Power For All
Power a Life was born from the mission to deliver high-quality portable power products to facilitate our digital lifestyles. For every product sold, they provide developing communities with the resources to meet the electrical, digital and power-related challenges they face head-on.
Jeremie explains that Power a Life believes strongly in Tech for Good, but the company goes beyond that to provide so much more in the real world. Supported by learning materials and notebooks, Power a Life is always on the lookout for innovative, transformational and scalable ways to help communities that need it most.
We discuss the meaning of social enterprises, making a profit as a Tech for Good company, the necessity of adapting to customer and corporate trends, and ultimately making a positive difference in the world through the power of business.
