ANIS AOUINI - RISING STARS - OZY MEDIA

www.ozy.com | Tuesday 04.02.2014

When Anis Aouini proclaimed in high school that he would change the world, his friends laughed and called him crazy. After he showed them an elaborate remote control airplane that he built from scratch, they swore he must have bought it. And today, when the chairman of the Tunis-based wind power startup Saphon Energy tells people about the bladeless wind turbine he invented — the Saphonian — they ask how he knows it will work, since the Japanese and Americans hadn’t already invented something similar.
