Venture Builder (32-40 hours)

Hi! We’re Enviu. We believe in an inclusive economy that serves people and planet. We build ventures that address social and environmental issues hands-on, and drive market development.

  • We work with ~35 great people in our offices in Rotterdam, Bangalore & Nairobi

You will…

  • Be analyzing different fields to ensure we focus on the right innovations, for example into the supply chain of the leather industry, into a hydrogen propulsion system for shipping or how to bridge the gap between micro insurance product and customer.
