Hi We’re Enviu. Founded in 2004, we celebrate over 10 years of experience in the co-creation and development social startups. We challenge ourselves with large societal and environmental issues. Our end goal is always to create impact for a large group of (marginalised) people and improving their livelihood. Our approach to impact in short: From issue to idea, from idea to start-up.
We start from a system error, with as end goal to build markets for good
Rather the issue than an idea or product is the starting point of the eventual business solution. If the issue affects over 100 million people, and there is a willingness to pay and an urgency to solve, we see a market opportunity!
We build and grow social and sustainable ventures
Each venture entails a product or service, a business model, a business case, and a structure to scale. As co-founder, Enviu works alongside of the CEO of the company, making the business investor-ready and using hybrid financial models to achieve our goals.
We develop markets, reinforcing our own, and other ventures
Ultimately, Enviu wants to correct the flaws in the larger system the company is operating in. Successfully starting a flagship venture requires the improvement of market conditions. This simultaneously encourages market growth as the soil is prepared for competitors to start.
We design and build for scalability, realizing world-changing social multinationals
Enviu leverages and maximises the impact of a good business concept by taking scalability into account from the start Our social multinational approach builds on a scalable business architecture. A holding company functions as an umbrella under which new ventures are developed without distracting the local entrepreneurial team, but building on their experiences.
