HISTORY

Know more about our journey

Established in 2008, Ennovent began with a simple mission – to improve the lives of people living in low-income markets. Our role then focused on structuring investments into early-stage enterprises that served these communities. Today, the mission remains the same but our vision has expanded. We now catalyse innovative business ventures to create economic, social and environmental sustainability in developing countries globally.
