Annet van Egmond

Creative, highly energetic, trendsetting entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in the field of lighting, design and sculpture. In addition to being the founder of solar powered lighting company Annet van Egmond, I co-founded and co-owned the internationally renowned and highly acclaimed Dutch lighting design company Brand van Egmond.

I strongly believe in the power of entrepreneurship to develop innovative solutions that benefit both the environment and society. My company, Annet van Egmond, aims to design affordable and durable lamps based on solar cell technology.

It is my ambition to positively impact the lives of people around the world through the use of an abundant and free resource – the sun. I am currently designing high-quality solar powered lamps that are both durable, portable and affordable.

The prototypes of the lamps were presented last November during the Dutch trade mission to South Africa led by the Prime Minister of the Netherlands. It is now my ambition to launch these lamps globally in partnership with a number of corporations and NGO’s. If you are interested in joining me in this venture, please contact me at
