Factor[E] is a venture development firm that supports early-stage entrepreneurs develop innovative new technologies that have the potential to solve significant problems in development.
We have worked with Factor[E] over the last three years to understand how its successful approach in the energy sector could be applied to WASH, specifically the urban sanitation services and waste to resource portfolios.
Factor[E] has developed an investment thesis and a pipeline of new ideas, with a strong emphasis on technological innovations in these sectors. This has led to the development of a portoflio of five investments which we believe could be transformational for the sector.
We see huge potential for new technology developments to reduce costs, improve operational performance and lower the barriers to new enterprises setting up in the WASH sector, and have partnered with Factor[E] to explore what might be possible.
