Enova, an Endeavor Entrepreneur company, was honored with the Microsoft Education Award at the 2013 Tech Awards this month in San Jose, CA. Founded by Endeavor Entrepreneurs Jorge Camil, Mois Cherem Arana and Raúl Maldonado, Enova brings technology-based learning to disadvantaged communities throughout Mexico by designing, building and operating small, cost-effective educational centers called the Red de Innovación y Aprendizaje (Learning and Education Network). By providing e-learning courses to children and adults in a wide range of subjects and skills, the organization seeks to transform the lives of low-income Mexicans with digital education.
The Tech Awards program was developed in 2000 by the The Tech Museum of Innovation, recognizing ten international organizations each year that are leveraging technology to address pressing urban and social issues across the categories of education, environment, health, economic development, and young innovation.
Endeavor has supported Enova and its founders with a variety of business development activities since their selection in 2011, including consultations with education experts, mentoring sessions with business leaders and participation in the Endeavor eMBA Program, among other activities.
