When Umuntu was founded, the change from “Bee The Change” to “Umuntu Movement” was actually the birth of the Ecopreneurship Cycle, which summarizes Umuntu’s current business model in one term.
The focus is on Umuntu’s innovative water filter technology. In theory, it enables everyone in the world to have access to clean water. Through Umuntu GmbH, the business branch of the Ecopreneurship Cycle, Umuntu generates the necessary financial resources to finance, organize and coordinate the many aid projects of the Umuntu Movement worldwide. Thus, these two business areas of Umuntu form an inseparable symbiosis. The business finances the Movement and the Movement ensures awareness as well as a lived change in society on the subject of “clean water”.
This has resulted in the most sustainable business model that we at Umuntu can imagine. And as we firmly believe, this business model has a potential that we do not even suspect.
