Founder and CEO of the Lifestyle Brand, Winnergy LLC, Corey S. Jacobs in partnership with Rufai Kasim, has set up the Carlo Van Security company to empower the security sector in Africa.
According to Corey Jacobs, coming to impact Africa with businesses and charity projects is a fulfilment to his father’s wish.
Speaking in a recent interview, he revealed that, his father who is from West Africa, Sierra Leone always tells him, to come to Africa, “Make sure you go home to the motherland to see your people to do great things.”.

True to his father’s words, Corey is on his second time in Ghana, Africa, impacting lives with his charity project; he visited and donated to flood victims in the Volta Region and also visited prisons to donate and shared some wealth of knowledge to the inmates.

He revealed that, Carlo Van Security was established after his business partner and director at Carlo Van Security, Rufai Kasim had a horrific experience with armed robbers in 2019, the robbery was a result of a set-up between a friend and the robbers. The result of his experience – Carlo Van – could be explained with the popular expression, “necessity is the mother of inventions”.
“I remember I was in Ghana in 2019 to purchase a house for American comedian Michael Blankson, but a friend of mine set me up for armed robbers. Luckily for me, I had paid for the house, so they only made away with my clothes and other stuff… I remember how I stood helpless while they took my valuables,” he recounted.
The robbers managed to take away more than physical possessions but left Kasoim needing psychiatric attention.
“After that horrific experience, I suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which was difficult to deal with. So I decided to do something positive with my situation,” he said.
Out of his pain, Kasim developed a wireless security panel and a door sensor that calls the police and other emergency contacts when an intruder is detected.
“I made a wireless panel because there have been times where the robbers are able to cut through the wires and break in. I also added a motion detector that will trigger an in-built siren to wail,” he disclosed.
“The panel also has a two-way audio slot that can be connected to the [homeowner’s] phone”.The camera has a night vision and rechargeable batteries, which means that it can function even when there are lights off,” he said in an interview.
