We’re thrilled to announce Solstice Initiative as the winner of Obvious #worldpositive prize. Their team — led by Steph Speirs and Steve Moilanen — coupled with a promising community-led customer acquisition approach is what impressed us the most. Connecting non-homeowners with the power of solar fits perfectly into our investment thesis of tackling the world’s biggest problems.

Steph wants to makes the solar revolution “as inclusive as possible.” That’s an opportunity we can get behind.

The other finalists — Happitech, Tembo, ResSpot and BrighTap — delivered truly impressive pitches and have exciting prospects in their future.
