Wessex Social Ventures


After our World Champion success in October 2015, we realised the true potential of our products and how much further they could grow. As a result, two of our alumni, supported by two of our business advisors, created Wessex Social Ventures (WSV); a community interest company designed to turn projects into scalable social businesses and accelerate their growth. Our SanEco Agriculture and soon, Comfort & Protection brands have entered WSV and been professionally branded as Roots and Petal respectively, to grow our products under full-time, professional supervision.


WSV’s operation by alumni from Enactus Southampton, ensures our values and high duty of care are maintained. Since handing over SanEco Agriculture in late 2016, WSV have pitched them across the globe; talking at the United Nations HQ in New York three time for the Nexus Youth Summit, Merit360 and the inaugural Impact 2030 Summit, training members of the Bond network on becoming social enterprises, and showcasing at the Toilet Board Coalition’s First Global Toilet Business, Innovation and Investment Summit in Mumbai.
