Endeavour Inspired Infrastucture (Endeavour) is building companies to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges by developing breakthrough technologies, launching companies that harness them, and make sustainable infrastructure affordable and ubiquitous. Endeavour  works at global scale, partnering with leaders in IT, property, and energy to deliver sustainable solutions that allow them to achieve their zero carbon and water neutral goals.

Jakob Carnemark is the CEO and Founder of Endeavour. He’s widely regarded as a one of the world’s leading pioneer, visionary, and technologist relating to digital infrastructure. He’s built a remarkable career as a big thinker attacking big problems in a interdisciplinary, pragmatic, and practical manner. Jakob saw the world’s overdue need for a new approach to water, waste, and energy infrastructure decades ago and has been working tirelessely to bring the Endeavor purpose and mission to life.

– One that delivers clean water to everyone. 30% of the world population lacks access to safe water at home.
– One that makes renewable energy easier and less expensive than fossil fuels. 90% of transportation energy used in the US in 2021 was petroleum based.
– One that transforms waste into valuable commodities. 91% of plastic produced has never been recycled.

Endeavour is purpose-built to support the reliable, rapid growth and sustainable operations of global cloud & logistics companies by –

– Developing the core technologies needed for sustainable IT & logistics.
– Validating and scaling solutions with top utilities & manufacturers.
– Deploying distributed energy & IT infrastructure with cloud companies



Endeavour is a mission-driven innovation platform reinventing infrastructure to tackle global challenges and help balance the planet. At the forefront of innovation, Endeavour is developing an integrated sustainable infrastructure technologies. They develop the core technologies needed for sustainable industry, validate and scale solutions with top utilities and manufacturers, and deploy distributed energy and IT infrastructure with industry partners.

These partnerships make it possible for Endeavour to scale breakthrough technologies that make clean water and renewable energy affordable and accessible to communities worldwide. Endeavour reinvests profits from the companies that we launch to create a continuous, self-sustaining cycle of innovative solutions for many of the world’s greatest challenges.

Endeavour has several solutions which will reduce water usage, to provide clean and renewable power, and to eliminate waste. The Edged platform is currently building zero-water, zero-carbon data centers in Europe, with a patented waterless cooling solution from our Thermal Works team. The GridBlock group will be deploying a plug-and-play “smart” energy router for EV fleet charging, which has multiple charging ports, receives and distributes both AC and DC power, and can even supply power back to the grid. The TurboCell team will be launching a turbine that runs on clean fuels, such as the clean diesel and green hydrogen created by the Pact group’s waste-to-fuels unit. Pact’s waste-to-fuels unit converts plastic waste, that otherwise would not be recycled, into clean fuel for jets, diesel trucks, and heavy machinery.

Endeavour develops small, distributed systems based on modular components which achieve  economies of scale through replication, not concentration. This allows building resilient systems, iterating rapidly, and driving down costs enough to make sustainable infrastructure ubiquitous worldwide.

Endeavour was conceived as a Sustainable Habitat for Innovation towards a Purpose (SHIP). This model allows Endeavor to maintain financial independence and provides the ability to redeploy profits from the companies launched to self-fund new innovations. This model provides flexibility to navigate between short-term market opportunities and audacious long-term goals. It also creates a unique atmosphere that encourages cross-pollination and attracts a crew of passionate world-changers.
