Inveneo is a non-profit social enterprise whose mission is to get the tools of ICT into the hands of organizations and people who need them most - those in remote and rural communities in the developing world. To do this, Inveneo creates and sells highly affordable and sustainable ICTs that are specifically designed for organizations- governments, NGOs, private enterprises - that serve these rural communities with vital services that include education, healthcare, economic development, relief and telecentres.

During September 2007, CNN showed a programme about the work of Inveneo in rural Uganda where the co-founder, Kristin Peterson stated that she regarded providing ICT to rural areas as important as providing food.
