Circadian Energy provides affordable, sustainable energy infrastructure for underserved communities by developing an energy management hub which provides simple home-to-home energy sharing and integrates with existing off-grid generation technologies. Currently, over 1 billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity, and another 2 billion still rely on alternative sources for their basic energy needs. Existing off-grid solutions such as pico-solar devices and solar home systems are unable to scale and fully replace alternative fuels, which is not only expensive but is also extremely hazardous. By enabling energy sharing between homes, an energy network is created where each household's energy generation and storage supports the collective capacity of the community, allowing the entire network to scale and expand their energy usage.
Circadian Energy is currently developing pilot programs in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, to provide reliable energy access for communities without electricity.

HITCH is a Smart Wireless Mesh Router & Predictive Content Caching Software Platform that pre-downloads relevant online content once, so many users can access the same information quickly without an Internet connection. Globally, over 4 billion people don't have sustainable (available, affordable & accessible) broadband. Most of these users are un/underserved by existing coverage and service infrastructure; and live in rural and urban emerging markets. Thus, are denied the ability to benefit from real technology-driven economic growth. Flexfinity has developed HITCH – an enhanced smart wireless mesh router that enables communities automatically build, operate, and sustain self-contained Internet platforms; accelerating sustainable broadband in emerging markets.
HITCH is working closely with 10 schools for a 3-month trial period, to intelligently deliver affordable educational video content straight to classrooms.
