This is a conversation with Albin Wilson

๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Albin Wilson is an engineer by trade but has a passion for telling stories and for challenging endeavours. He co-founded the electric vehicle company Uniti in Sweden but has since moved to Nairobi, Kenya to join Opibus, an electric vehicle manufacturer. At Opibus, Albin is in charge of strategy and marketing supporting Opibusโ€™ mission to electrify Africa. With products made and uniquely tailored for their environment, Opibus has a commitment to keeping their products locally made. The company is founded on three pillars of work; electric conversion systems, electric motorcycles and energy and charging solutions. These pillars ensure that from start to finish, the products Opibus produce support a fully sustainable ecosystem while also building toward a more environmentally conscious future. All while creating local jobs and building products that make sense for the local use case - designed in Kenya, for Africa.
