Kenya's BRCK on CNN’s ‘Startups to Watch’ listThe Kenyan startup company BRCK has made it to the '2014 edition of the CNN 10: Startups'. The Kenyans have been ranked among the world’s most promising startups, that have the potential “to transform industries, help the planet's less fortunate or become a handy part of our lives."

BRCK is the only Africa-based startup in the list. The product is a brick-like device that serves as 'the internet's backup generator.' It can keep 20 devices connected for eight hours and is robust enough to handle power failures. It works for more than 8 hours without electricity.
