Manelleh has new co-owners
Annette and Poul Due Jensen invest in Manelleh, a new social impact company that will make a difference for the world's women.
Manelleh is a new purpose-driven company that sells interiors, accessories and gifts that are handmade by women. All products are made by social fair trade companies. The purpose of the business is to make a difference for women around the world. Every time you buy a product, you contribute to raising living standards and ensuring that more women have decent, meaningful and dignified jobs.
Behind Manelleh stands Maria Manel Bøge, who has joined Annette and Poul Due Jensen in the team.
"It is first and foremost an investment in Maria and her purpose-driven business concept, and it is also an investment that comes from the heart. My wife, Annette, and I have lived in many different places in the world and we have seen the need to improve women's conditions. It is in our DNA to want to create a better world, and we want to make a difference for women around the globe. So it was not a difficult consideration when we met Maria and got the opportunity to become part of Manelleh", says Poul Due Jensen, who is CEO of the Grundfos Group on a daily basis.
"For me, it is a huge pat on the back that Annette and Poul Due Jensen have chosen to become part of Manelleh. I think many entrepreneurs who are a few years down the road can relate to the experience of needing help to take the business to the next level. The investment means that there is now a little more room in terms of being able to invest in growing the business. But the most important thing for me is that I have found two people who share my values - and who want both me and Manelleh the very best, says Maria Manel Bøge, founder and director of Manelleh.
