About the Founders:
“In 2004, Peace Corps volunteer Sam Goldman’s fifteen-year-old neighbor was badly burned in a kerosene accident in Benin, Africa. Sam knew there had to be better, safer ways to power homes and businesses in the developing world. After returning to North America from the Peace Corps, Sam enrolled in Stanford’s Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability class, where he met co-founder Ned Tozun. In 2006, Ned and Sam founded d.light, developing the initial prototype solar lantern and an ambitious plan to bring safe, bright, clean lighting and power to people around the globe. d.light’s first commercial solar product made its debut in the marketplace in 2008.” (www.dlight.com
