Meet Mike Bellot, the CEO and Co-Founder of Solo Bag - an innovative school backpack that provides light for reading and power for charging mobile phones and tablets.

The backpack was cleverly designed with a built-in solar panel to help students in third world countries who have little to no reliable access to electricity.

Bellot, who is 26-years old and from Haiti, studied global politics and international trade in Taiwan. He says he was inspired to invent the bag when his cousin tragically died from a fire in Haiti.
