About This Project

WWF Schweiz and Ennovent worked together to create a sustainable impact on tropical forest landscapes using business approaches.


The Tropical Forest Challenge specifically catalysed business ideas, start-ups and early-stage companies with solutions to crucial biodiversity challenges in tropical forest landscapes. 306 nominations and 74 applications from early-stage businesses were crowdsourced, and two winners were selected following voting, expert reviews and jury rounds.


The winners, Runa LLC (Ecuador) and Planting Empowerment (Panama) were rewarded with global visibility, networking opportunities and capacity building support to grow their businesses.

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
