Holding an MP4 video player in his hand, Kevin Lowther, MyPower Solutions CEO, called Sipho Mseleku, head of the Global Business Roundtable (GBR) to the stage at the 5th Annual GBR Leadership Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa held September 24 to 26.
Lowther announced to the crowded room, “Anyone who holds this technology holds the ability to change the continent of Africa.”
As Sipho took the MP4 video player from Kevin’s hand, the hundreds of conferences attendees, representing over 22 plus countries in Africa and Europe, erupted into cheers. The moment marked “a passing of the torch” to GBR as they prepare to launch MyPower Solutions, Africa.
Excitement built throughout the conference as Kevin and Trip showed the GBR membership the first MyPower Solutions franchise unit that was shipped from the US and setup on site for the conference, and explained everything from the business model to the solar powered panels. Kevin and Trip met new partners, including leaders with a bank that represents 38 African countries, who are interested in assisting businesses and individuals with micro-finance loans to fund MyPower Solutions products and franchise purchases.
The summit allowed GBR leadership to catch the vision and commit to heading up the franchise rollout in their respective countries. Now, both the Master Franchise Agreement for the Continent of Africa and the franchise disclosure documents, which allows people in the US to purchase franchise units to put into the hands of missionary’s in Africa are in the hands of attorneys for final review.
