Max Chinnah, a 26-year old inventor and entrepreneur from Nigeria, is hoping to change the lives of many people around the world with his newest invention – a smokeless stove that not only cooks food, but also converts heat energy into electricity to charge your phone!
Chinnah has recently patented his creation with his partner, Attigah. It is set to be produced on a very large scale through his company called Terraoak. Aside from promoting the product for camping and other outdoor recreational activities, they are also planning to hand out 1,000 of the stoves to rural Kenyan farmers.
Chinnah, who is a graduate of Computer Science, said he has always wanted to be an entrepreneur but he also loved to do something that could positively impact other people’s lives. After attending the Clinton Global Initiative conference in Miami, he was inspired to become an inventor
With his latest invention, he hopes to help make a greener environment and reduce the threat of global warming. And he also believes it should be available to every person, regardless of their class or socio-economic background.
