A Message from our Chairman
Great organizations are not defined by their products alone. Its people and its culture matter most, as innovative products and services are simply the output. The House of Zenviba is where our creatives help other creatives exploit opportunities to turn the centuries old pyramid scheme on its head, allowing abundance and ingenuity to flow from the bottom to the top, and thus unleashing the power of the 99% who are the true creators of wealth, while abolishing the top down structure that has unjustly enriched the 1%.
We have hand-picked and assembled an eclectic mix of Creatives, Environmental Capitalists, Social Entrepreneurs, Urbanists and Globalists with varied experience, skill sets and 200 years of combined global capital markets and economic development expertise and established a deep culture of servant leadership. We structure each relationship for optimal results and support our investments and initiatives with advocacy and civic engagement to improve the lives of those in the communities we serve.
Zenviba Ventureprises is comprised of venture capital firm Zenviba Capital LLC, economic development Benefit corporation Zenviba Venturata Fund Inc., offshore merchant bank Zenviba Trading Company Ltd. and nonprofit investment bank and think and do tank Zenviba Academy of Art and Science Inc., which work in concert to fulfill our manifesto. Our icon symbolizes our Fourth Sector vision and commitment in everything that we do, as the universe intended. Our resources, relationships and precise execution set us apart.
