About

Ugwem I. Eneyo is the co-founder and CEO of Solstice Energy Solutions, a start-up company specializing in leveraging the internet-of-things (IoT), software, and data-driven approaches to help African homes and small business find reliable, clean and cost-saving energy solutions. Solstice has developed the SHYFT, an integrated hardware and software platform that helps users save money on energy and easily manage consumption.

Ms. Eneyo’s Nigerian heritage created a strong passion for addressing the challenges and opportunities across the African continent. As a Masters and admitted Ph.D. student in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, she focuses on the nexus of energy, environment, and sustainable development of emerging markets. Her previous research includes working in rural Tanzania with faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Nelson Mandela Institute of Science and Technology in Arusha, developing techniques for distributed water treatment. Ms. Eneyo also spent time in industry working as an environmental and regulatory advisor at Exxon Mobil, supporting projects in Chad, Nigeria, and Southeast Asia.

Her work and experience have resulted in her commitment to increasing representation of women and people of color in academia, technology, and entrepreneurship. Ms. Eneyo is a firm believer that these niches do not lack talent, but the talent lacks opportunity, and thus, remains actively involved with organizations that support this cause.

Topics

Women in Technology

As a former Engineering Ph.D. student, an engineer in the oil and gas industry, and now tech entrepreneur, Ugwem has seen the challenges and opportunities for women in technology and the role women are playing in shaping the future.

Sustainable Development of Megacities

At Solstice, Ugwem leads a team that is addressing the environmental and social implications of development in urban areas, particularly in emerging markets. She’s spent much of her career answering questions on how to reimagine infrastructure in growing cities while also considering sustainability.

Africa’s Emerging Tech Ecosystem

Just take a look at how Africa leap-frogged traditional landlines to cell phones, or the current adoption of mobile money and you can see that the continent is a true innovators canvas. Ugwem’s company is another company using technology to transform the energy sector, but through this lens, she sees the forefront of Africa’s emerging tech ecosystem.

Other topics include:

  • African Entrepreneurs & the Start-Up Ecosystem
  • People of Color in Technology
  • The Future of Energy
  • Renewable Energy & Emerging Markets
