About Us

A business, network and community to effectively take business ideas to low-income markets


The vision that guides our work

Sustainable development in low-income markets globally provides extensive business opportunities, but current mainstream market solutions are often neither profitable nor sustainable.

Know more about our journey

Established in 2008, Ennovent began with a simple mission – to improve the lives of people living in low-income communities. 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 worldwide to reach developing countries across the globe. Now, we develop business innovation projects that are good for the world, for society and for the environment as a whole.
