WHAT WE DO
OVO is on a mission to empower smallholder farmers in developing countries by providing affordable, income-generating products that will help break the cycle of poverty.
OVO was founded by William Tremblay (B.Eng) and Scott Martin (BES, MBA). We met while we were working as Account Executives at Procter & Gamble, where we gained valuable experience in understanding the needs of large-scale B2B sales and distribution organizations. Most recently, we helped establish a successful Norwegian Pay-As-You-Go solar energy startup in Zambia, Solar Village AS. Our experience in Zambia is where we saw how big of a challenge it is for rural communities to lift themselves out of poverty with traditional solar products, and we believe that equipping families with our technology is the opportunity they need to improve their quality of life.
