As the founder and CEO of 10Power, Sandra Kwak has built up a company that helps developing nations gain access to clean, renewable energy in a way that is focused on creating an environment of self-reliance. 10Power provides financing for renewable energy projects and employs local contractors for the installation process. Kwak is one of the foremost thinkers around the idea of ‘Fourth World Nation Building’, centred around populations that currently lack access to any electricity and often other essential basic amenities. In 2017 she joined the Echoing Green group of transformational leaders working on bringing innovation to the social good sector.
