Access to financing is not enough. ENVenture has three inputs to build the capacity of Community Based Organisations (CBOs) to launch sustainable distribution businesses.
Business Bootcamp ENVenture hosts all our partner staff for interactive regional empowered entrepreneur training bootcamps covering topics such as finance, marketing, sales, accounting, and business management.
Mentorship ENVenture recruits business experts and graduates known as the Business Development Fellows. By working with youth, we are creating a new talent pipeline for the clean energy access sector. A good number of our Fellows have surpassed their expectations to fully diversify their enterprises to a level that is able to create a linkage to other income generating community activities.
Network Our CBO partner network of over 100 enterprises across Uganda has grown and acquired the specific experience in clean energy access. Through ENVenture’s replicator model they ably serve as contacts for each other. We encourage the partners to link directly with the cleantech product suppliers to demonstrate best practices and knowledge sharing.
