Steve’s life is filled with innovation. He launched Nokero with a mission to provide affordable solar solutions for communities around the world.
A mechanical engineer with a penchant for competitive ski racing, Steve Katsaros began his colorful career with the invention of several commercial products for the ski industry. His first brush with “impact inventing” came in 2002 with RevoPower, a motorized wheel for bicycles. In early 2010, he came up with another bright idea – a simple, portable solar light bulb with the potential to revolutionize life for the 1.4 billion people in the world who live without access to electricity. Five months after his first sketch, Steve launched Nokero, a for-profit company with a mission to provide affordable solar technology solutions for off-grid communities around the world.
