US Based startup moving to South Africa (Johannesburg)
My name is Olivier Ceberio and I am a French entrepreneur based in Boston (USA). Our company, Resolute Marine Energy (RME), is developing a wave-driven desalination system that can produce enough fresh water for 20,000 people using the energy from ocean waves only.
Our launch market is in South Africa and we are considering opening our first subsidiary in South Africa in Protected content . I am preparing a visit to South Africa in Fall Protected content we are doing with a US trade mission, to consolidate our existing partnerships and create new ones.
I am interested in building a stronger network of people in South Africa and would appreciate any introduction that would be relevant to our purpose, in particular:
- Contact with public authorities (municipalities, DWA etc)
- Contact with entrepreneurship ecosystem
- Contact with potential industrial partners (only if) specialized in marine deployment
