Meck Khalfan, CEO and co-founder of Puku, a revolutionary charger which can be used with mobile phones and similar USB electronic devices, sat down to speak with AFKInsider about product development. Conceptualized after coming across a similar product during New York City’s Hurricane Sandy, the charger was named after a species of Antelope known to survive in versatile conditions. In the final segment of the interview, Khalfan expands on Puku and fashion as well as launching a global product from Africa.
“Being in the U.S., it makes it easier to launch a product and position it as a global product as opposed to being in Nairobi or South Africa. You face that battle, because you really don’t have much access to the global audience,” Khalfan said about African entrepreneurs.
