Ampersand is an energy and mobility startup headquartered in Kigali, Rwanda. We‘re achieving the world’s first true mass-market shift to electric vehicles, a vital tipping point in the fight against climate change.
East Africa’s 5 million moto taxi drivers are some of the hardest working people on the planet. Many days these drivers work more than 13 hours yet end up with little money in their pockets. Our energy and vehicle service platforms offer savings that can double a driver’s income.
Our electric motorcycles offer superior performance than the petroleum bikes and reduce carbon emissions by more than 75%. Converting one of Rwanda’s petrol motorbikes to electric is the equivalent the carbon captured by 128 trees.
In order to accomplish all this, we are building a world class team of mission-driven innovators, engineers, and managers that are ready to serve humbly and address the hard problems.
