About Canopus Foundation

The Canopus Foundation is a registered private charitable institution under German jurisdiction committed to entrepreneurial projects in developing and emerging countries since 1997.

Canopus promotes private social investments and social enterprises which aim at alleviating poverty in off-grid rural areas and poor urban neighbourhoods with financial resources and business expertise.

Together with its partner organisation, Ashoka, the foundation has set off the project “Solar for All”. This global initiative aims at making solar energy affordable to the 1.4 billion people worldwide who are without access to electricity. “Solar for All” is globally supported by more than 50 organisations.
