WakaWaka is an award-winning, fast-growing, social enterprise on a mission to help people everywhere plug into the sun with premium quality solar-powered consumer products. Their suite of portable solar solutions provide hours of sustainable power and light — all using nothing but the power of the sun. Through their Share the Sun model, for every product sold a solar light is given to humanitarian and emergency relief efforts around the globe.

Founded in 2012, the WakaWaka team has made tremendous advances without traditional financing, including selling over 550,000 units and raising $1.5M through a rewards crowdfunding campaign. To date, they’ve seen over $11M in global sales and 80% year over year growth.

WakaWaka’s online retail partners include Amazon and Best Buy, and the team’s line of ultra-efficient and beautifully designed portable solar-powered devices was awarded with 3 CES Innovation Awards in 2015. The team is working to further expand their product line and increase inventory as they work to continue to harness the power of business and the power of the sun for social good.
