I progetti Eni per la diversificazione economica

Our plan of economic diversification

We support start-up projects

In line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 8, we commit to promoting lasting, inclusive, sustainable economic growth, full, productive employment and dignified work in all the countries we work in. With this in mind, we have started several plans to develop small businesses. These have helped improve families’ living conditions and, at the same time, local development in their countries. We currently offer the chance to invest in this kind of project in Ghana and Nigeria. We give our beneficiaries in those countries financial support, kits with the material they need to start up and suitable vocational training. In Kenya and Mozambico, meanwhile, we have set up a number of business incubation initiatives, which help start up new businesses.

My father was a chicken farmer. Once I’ve learnt enough from the training, I’d like to carry on his work at the poultry company.

New businesses to help Mozambique develop

Our business immersion events for small and medium companies help local business grow.


Training helps us come up with useful tools for innovation for us as entrepreneurs, but also improves our teamwork and customer relations. We’ve been on the market for about eight months, but we came prepared, thanks in part to the skills we learnt at the #Ideate boot camp.

Helping our farmers with training has been a key and integral factor for us. I've always believed that empowering farmers means building a more sustainable business. As a company, we leverage technology to bring widespread training to farmers.
