About This Project

Ennovent was part of a consortium working to establish an innovation hub to drive sustainable outcomes in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in urban India.


A crowdsourcing campaign was conducted across India to find and select business innovations at the idea, seed and growth stages for acceleration support. IHUWASH worked with the city governments of Faridabad, Mysuru and Udaipur to support high impact market-based WASH innovations for India’s urban WASH challenges.


The businesses were given financial and technical assistance to develop their business models, structure partnerships, pitch to investors and expand to new locations through partnerships with city urban local bodies.

Dear Friends,


Thank you for your interest in Ennovent! We closed down Ennovent’s operations at the end of March 2024.


We had been deliberating about continuing our work in the changing overall market and impact space during the last year. The decision to close came after careful consideration of major policy shifts, changing funding priorities and market challenges that have significantly affected our business model.


Reflecting on our journey since 2008, we are filled with great pride in the legacy Ennovent leaves behind. We have been a catalyst for more than 250 ventures across 40 countries through our involvement in 90 projects. Our mission has always been to promote businesses with sustainable solutions for low-income markets, a goal that we pursued with unwavering commitment. As we move forward, our team members remain dedicated to pursuing lasting sustainable impact through their future endeavours.


We deeply appreciate your support and patronage over the years.


Warm regards,
Team Ennovent
