BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT FELLOWSHIP
The ENVenture program contributes to energy access through a network of volunteers that become mentors for the businesses that we are creating through our CBO partners. We call them the Business Development Fellows. We recruit both local and international enthusiasts that are ready to roll up their sleeves to create bottom-up solutions to ending energy poverty. That starts with the pivotal role you would provide mentoring the CBO in market research, logistics planning, accounts management, and being a focal point for ENVenture's mission objective.
The Fellowship program is an enriching experience that not only lets you gain on-hand experience, but also play a crucial role in providing cleantech products to local communities. Many of our former Fellows have enjoyed their three-month placements and gone ahead to request additional time. When skilled, passionate individuals join forces with great organizations working toward sustainable development goals, it becomes a win-win situation.

I found out about ENVenture’s Business Development Fellowship program through the internet. I believe its work is helpful as they work with the lowest income people all over Uganda. It provides low-credit clean energy loans to small rural community-based organizations (CBOs) to launch sustainable energy businesses. The products that CBOs acquire are better for the environment and better in quality. The ENVenture partner-organization I worked with is called The Women Support Initiative (TWOSI).
