If Lease & Buy could help you penetrating developing markets with water related solutions, discuss your ideas with Sjef Ernes (Director of Aqua for All) and Saskia Reus-Makkink (Founder and CEO of Africa Funded and Manager of Aqua for All's incubator program) at a new Free Feedback Friday.
For technology providers, lease & buy constructions might be a way to enter developing markets. When leasing a car or renting a heater, pre-financing a house or leasing installations for industrial use is common sense in Europe, then why not lease (or lease-buy) your technology to local service providers in Africa? Why should we not apply this to water and sanitation solutions? With revenues from a secured period of time (3-5 years) in maintenance, repair and spare parts. And local partners who know to scale the applications , having their network to users, clients, governmental agencies and funders.
Enable potential customers to afford your technology with new finance concepts, while creating partnerships for further market extensions. In Kenya lease and buy constructions are already used to lease boreholes with integrated technology for operation and maintenance and transfer of the facility to operators. Connect with Sjef Ernes (Director Aqua for All) on September 16th to brainstorm Lease and Buy solutions.
