BonVenture adds another portfolio project

Posted on by EVPA


In July, the BonVenture II GmbH & Co. KG (BV II), BonVenture’s second investment fund, has welcomed yet another project partner to its portfolio: Ilses weite Welt GmbH brings up the number of BV II investments to eight. The social enterprise is set up to develop  films and products specially designed to meet the needs of people with dementia. The aim is to enhance physical and mental activity in the afflicted and improve their well-being. This also helps to relieve the pressure on care personnel and family members who are carers. Ilses weite Welt engages in active PR work , too, to promote a wider understanding of dementia.

BonVenture is also proud to announce that once more several of its portfolio partners have been honoured with prestigious awards. Among them is LobbyControl e.V., which received the Grimme Online Award 2012 for its ‘Lobbypedia’ blog in June. In May, the Solarlite GmbH received the National Energy Globe Award, Thailand. Solarlite has erected the country’s first solar thermal power plant.
