Inveneo is a 501c3 nonprofit social enterprise, which means that we operate like a business with a social mission. Our social mission is to get the tools of information communications technology (ICT), such as computers, telephony, and Internet access to those who need it most — people and organizations in rural and highly underserved communities of the developing world.

To achieve our mission, we serve organizations that provide vital education, healthcare, economic development, and relief services to these communities. Based on three years of successful implementations throughout rural Africa, we have developed the expertise to match the most relevant technology (hardware, software, power), implementation, and support services to each situation and the unique challenges these organizations face.

In order to deliver the most sustainable ICT solutions for these organizations, we are building a network of in-country entrepreneurs who we recruit, train, and certify to provide local project leadership, installation and ongoing support. Inveneo and our partners now provide professional services to deliver turnkey solutions, which can range from a basic site survey, installation and support to complete project design, software and hardware systems integration and project management.
Inveneo’s Social Impact

Since 2006, Inveneo and our Certified ICT Partners have delivered solutions to more than 300 communities in 23 countries, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. There are now 64 Inveneo Certified ICT Partners in 21 countries, and we are on track to grow our network to reach 75 partners in Africa and Asia in the first half of 2010. At the end of 2009, Inveneo and our partners have brought access to life-changing ICTs to more than 1,000,000 people in rural and underserved areas of the developing world.
