An Enterprise with plenty of heart, International Business Ventures (IBV) works to create new products and technologies for people in developing countries. Through innovative research and development, financial analysis, marketability, and international partnerships with universities throughout the world, the group seeks to bring cutting-edge technology to the people who need it most. Case in point: students from IBV travelled to Ghana to test and implement an inexpensive new infant heart rate monitor.
