Welcome to
Pit Pure Power

Increasing your impact

Welcome

Pit Pure Power is an internationally focused advisory boutique established by Daphne Pit with the aim of accelerating the transition towards a more sustainable planet, society and economy.

Through the work of Pit Pure Power, I pursue my two personal dreams:

To help sustainability become mainstream

To help achieve energy access for everybody everywhere

This is done by strengthening social enterprises and assisting sustainable start-ups in a tangible way, increasing their impact and supporting them to become more successful. Additionally Pit Pure Power helps investors to find investor-ready, sustainable enterprises.

My expertise lies in business advice, business mentoring,  increasing impact, pipeline scouting and investment readiness. Pit Pure power has a large, international network including social enterprises, energy access companies, NGO’s, funds and foundations.

Pit

That is me; Daphne Pit. I believe in a sustainable way of doing business as the only way forward. As mother of three teenagers, I feel that it is not only my passion, but even more my duty to help speed up the transition to a sustainable society.

With over 15 years experience in sustainability, in both the corporate and non-corporate sectors, I am now working directly with organisations focused on increasing their social or sustainable impact in the world.

I have expertise in the fields of:

  • social enterprises
  • energy access in India, Nepal and Africa
  • impact investment
  • sustainable value chains
  • project and program management

Pure

Pure and true to my beliefs in all that I do. No-nonsense and straightforward. Result-driven. Impact first.

Pure also stands for a pure world. Where ecology, society and economy are all equally important and benefit from each other in a pure and honest way.

Power

The power to grow as an entrepreneur, to strengthen your business, to increase your impact. The power to transform.

But power is also energy. Electricity. Light. Heat. Sunlight. Wind power. Sustainable energy. Where Pit Pure Power aims to make a difference.

Partners

I bring along a large, international network including social enterprises, energy access companies, NGO’s, funds and foundations, and partner organisations that I can turn to for expertise.

Within my network, I can reach out to many experienced people and organisations to help me and you realise your goals of increasing impact.

Pit Pure Power is proud partner of the Alliance for Rural Electrification and of MVO Nederland.

“Daphne is super to work with. Quick to understand what needs doing, totally pragmatic and flexible in getting there, supported by a healthy set of brains, tons of experience in our industry and a strong network. She has both been a resource person for us, helping out when we were short on own capacity, as well as a technical expert who knows her stuff on business development and finance. As far as we’re concerned, she is not done working for GOGLA yet!”

What we really like about working with Daphne is that she brings in both sharp investing acumen as well as deep knowledge of social enterprises. She is extremely well connected and always willing to make introductions . As a colleague, Daphne injects energy, professionalism and fun in a team dynamic.

Ik heb Daphne leren kennen als zeer gedreven en enthousiast. Daphne is rustig en heel doortastend, zonder je te willen sturen helpt ze je om jouw doel te bereiken. Ik heb het voorrecht gehad om door Daphne gecoacht te worden tijdens mijn opleiding Sociaal Ondernemen aan Nyerode Business University en steeds weer wist en weet ze precies de kern te raken.

“Daphne coached us through the complex, multiple actor process of capturing our franchise organisation.  She is a good listener, levels with everyone involved in an open, cooperative and joyful way – without losing sight of a clear common goal. She has a strong strategic vision and is able to translate this in to tactical and operational output as well’.

“We at Mlinda feel lucky to have benefited from Daphne’s broad experience and analytical insights into the renewable energy sector. Daphne was knowledgeable, helpful and flexible. A pleasure to work with!

Rebecca SymingtonMlinda Foundation

Knowledgeable, engaged, vision, pleasure to work with. That’s how I would describe working with Daphne. Thanks to her track record in financing and renewable energy she was able to be a valuable source and value add to strategic management decisions. I am available to anyone who would like to receive further feedback.

Daphne has a very strong network in the energy access sector and that is why we started working with her as business developer. Soon we connected on a much more strategic level. Daphne’s insights in the sector specifically, and impact investing in general, made her an ideal person for our credit committee. We are happy to have her on board. With a clear strategic and structured view she pushes the organisation to a more professional level. At the same time she does not lose track of what is practically feasible for a young company like Lendahand. On top of that she is always driven and passionate about the social impact we make!

Koen TheLendahand

We work with Pit Pure Power on an on-going basis for our work in Africa, in building up the Sendea network of local solar entrepreneurs. Daphne is a very committed and dedicated person to work with. The combination of practical, local, on-the ground knowledge and experience, combined with a strategic view on the sector, and her network with impact investors, make her great to work with. Pit Pure Power has really helped us in taking the needed steps to start and scale up Sendea and we look forward to our continued cooperation.

We started working with Daphne when she was at DOEN, met her again during her time at ElectriFI and now reached out to work with her on empowering women in the energy sector in India. Daphne is commercial, impact-driven, strategic, passionate and dedicated. A unique combination that can really help us grow. She pushes us further in our thinking and sets a high standard in what she does.

Daphne is a wonderful person and we hope we can work more intensively in the coming years with Pit Pure Power.

It’s a pleasure to work with Daphne.  She is very knowledgeable and experienced in working in impact investing.  What make her stand out is her pragmatism and efficiency and ability to deliver results in a time sensitive manner.
