About This Project

IRC, TARU and Ennovent partnered to accelerate the growth of early-stage businesses with innovative sanitation solutions for rural India.


50 business solutions were crowdsourced through a nationwide search and a cohort of six was selected for technical assistance, following interviews, expert assessments and business reviews. 25 mentors worked with the six cohort members to diversify their revenue streams, strengthen their partnership models, develop their distribution channels and prepare for an investor showcase.


A final investor showcase event was organised where the entrepreneurs were given an opportunity to pitch their businesses to prospective investors, with Garv Toilets emerging as the winner.







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
