Our Founding

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.
