Kacific has won INSEAD Alumni Association ‘Business as a Force for Good Award – 2021’
By Nathalie DE SPIEGELEIRE
After several rounds of consideration, we are pleased to announce that we will confer the Business as a Force for Good Award Singapore – 2021 Edition to Kacific Broadband Satellites Ltd. We were particularly impressed by the impact it made in helping rural communities improve healthcare and education conditions. We were also impressed with the business model which is built from the ground up with social impact in mind.
Christian Patouraux MBA’03D is the CEO of Kacific Broadband Satellites Group – a company he founded in 2013. Driven by the belief that “there is only one internet” – and that therefore access and quality level should be universal, Christian assembled a team of satellite and telecom industry veterans to build Kacific, a company that would design and launch an advanced telecommunications satellite and offer reliable satellite internet broadband to underserved parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific – at low cost, no matter where and to whom.
