About En-novate

Creating Opportunity

En-novate believes that South African SMMEs and business professionals need to start becoming more globally competitive. We make this possible by taking groups of entrepreneurs and business professionals on exploration trips to innovation hubs around the world, exposing them to the latest technologies, innovation and best business practices. Furthermore, we provide holistic, simplified solutions to SMMEs in developing cross-border partnerships in a variety of international markets.

We use our unique fusion of a local resource and global business networks to make going global a simple, fast and effective process.


Stories from previous trips

  • “Technology entrepreneurs today often resemble alchemists searching and experimenting for the just right elements to create something world-changing. South Africa is their perfect cauldron; combining disparate elements of a highly sophisticated economy side-by-side with vast, untapped developing markets. The natural outcome is that South Africa is currently breeding the next generation of emerging market technology champions: in Africa, and far beyond.”
