About us

Hi, we are Enviu. We kick-start impact-driven companies. Companies aimed at creating environmental and social impact. The products and services of our start-ups aim to improve the quality of life of as many people as possible in a sustainable way.

Vision

How can we maintain our quality of life, end poverty and restore our planets eco-systems at the same time? The world needs new models for production, distribution, education and how we do business. We believe that kick-starting impact-driven ventures is the key to do this. By starting impact-driven companies we give meaning to our vision The Economy of the Crowd; an inclusive economy where companies create value for people and planet. Through our work we aim to improve the quality of life of as many people as possible in a sustainable way.

How we work

Enviu has two core activities; Co-Creation and Business Development. Through Co-Creation we generate Business Concepts together with our community of entrepreneurs and innovators. We then act as risk taking partner with the entrepreneurs that have the most promising Concepts and make them investor ready. In short: issue > Business Concept > investor ready impact-driven company.

  • Co-Creation
    Together with our community, we identify environmental and societal issues around the world and analyse the needs of the people that are confronted with these problems. We start a Challenge on our online platform and invite entrepreneurs and innovators from all over the world to co-create on business concepts that aims to solve this issue. At the end of the Challenge, we deliver several business concepts ready for validation. Learn more about our Co-Creation Challenge.
  • Business Development 
    Our business development starts at a business concept, created at one of our Challenges or one that’s presented to us by an entrepreneur. We act as risk taking partner for the entrepreneur, validate the business model and make it investor ready. At the moment we mostly work in The Netherlands, India and Ghana. Learn more about our Business Development activities.

Economy of the Crowd

We believe that the Economy of the Crowd is the economy of the future. A system where companies are the drivers for change and create more value than just financial profit. A system that’s all about relationships between living systems, human trust and technology with a human face. Where companies create positive impact for their employees, society and the environment. We see more and more people, entrepreneurs and organisations heading into this direction. This is the only way we can make this change, But we can’t do it alone. Will you join us?
