Solar Bulb for Areas With No Electricity

Denver inventor Steve Katsaros has come up with a solar light bulb that he hopes will make a difference in third world countries. He also has a rather unique attitude towards the distribution of them. He has enlisted the aid of budding entrepreneurs that work in Kenya and Tanzania. Each receives a 'business in a box' that comes with 144 bulbs, displays and flyers. While most of his products have been sold to non-gov. organizations, he believes that in time a network of locals will work to make things easier on the distributors as well as the locals. Think of it as Mary Kay without the pink Caddy.
