Challenging uncertainties to advance development practice

Check Out Our Latest Project

In 2024 Development Ventures handed over their last development project, the ‘comonsol’ micro-grid, to the La Suiza community thereby ensuring the community’s access to reliable renewable energy to power their future development. The successful completion of this project marked more than a decade of overcoming challenges, ranging from supply chain delays to armed conflict, while continuously delivering sustainable development projects in conflict affected communities from Latin America to Central Asia. Having hit this milestone, Development Ventures’ founders took the difficult decision to disband the company to seek other challenges, taking solace in the fact that the great work done by the company has left a real and lasting impact in the communities with which we worked.

“They who know when they can fight and when they cannot, will be victorious” – Sun Tzu”
