A Case for Transformational Entrepreneurship: ZaaCoal Social Enterprise

Written by: Dr Stephen Dobson, International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship, Coventry University Since he was child Amin Sulley, from Ghana, has always thought a little differently about life and perhaps noticed things in his everyday surroundings that others tended to overlook.  But, above all Amin has always stopped to ask the most simple of questions – “Why?”  When I recently met social innovator and entrepreneur Amin in Accra he told me about his journey in founding the company ZaaCoal, which provides cleaner energy through the production of charcoal made from coconut waste.  ZaaCoal was launched in 2015 but initially it came about from Amin’s recognition of a waste problem in the city. With over a thousand coconut sellers working on the streets he questioned “Why doesn’t anyone use this somehow? What can I do to help solve this?”
