The Market Opportunity

Low-income markets globally offer innovators, investors, corporations and enablers significant opportunities to make an impact while also generating profits. People living in these communities have limited access to affordable goods and services and also have constraints to supply labour, products and services to local and global markets. However, despite the significant opportunity catering to these markets can be complex and risky.

Our Core Values

Ennovent is guided by a set of core values which are central to how we serve our partners and clients, operate as a team and
aspire to achieve our vision.

Impact before profit: Our aspiration to create a sustainable future for low-income people will not be sacrificed for short-term financial profits

In 2008 Ennovent started as a fund, investing in innovations – such low-cost schools and affordable healthcare models – with the vision of improving the lives of low-income people in India. While this continues to be our vision, over the last five years we have been evolving our approach to making it a reality. Today Ennovent is more than a fund. We’re an innovation accelerator providing not only access to finance, but also helping clients to discover new ideas, develop effective business models and scale the impact of viable enterprises.
