Our Story 

Amaven was founded by PK Vaish and Sam Greenwood in 2013 with guidance from an advisory board of experts from the exercise medicine, sport, fitness and healthcare sectors. In 2019 Chris Botes started Amaven SA in conjunction with PK Vaish and the UK Team with a view to offer the same world-class services to South Africans

Amaven started out as a platform to identify talented athletes in sports academies and schools, however the product changed when Sam and PK discovered that there was an unmet need, as primary school teachers were not equipped to teach children about healthy lifestyle choices, nor were they skilled enough to help children to develop the fundamental movement skills necessary for athletic ability. Amaven was created to meet this need, by upskilling teachers to teach outstanding PE lessons and giving children the tools to learn athletic skills at home. 

The same challenges exists in South Africa, and with a school population in excess of 12 million, and only 300 000 teachers. Chris identified a gap in South Africa for educating teachers on how to use the PE platforms, as well as coaching education and elite, sport specific athlete programs. In South Africa we have partnered with excellent, accredited companies that offer schools a selection of options, from total coaching solutions, to training courses and camps.

There is also a missing gap in the Exercise Medicine, Fitness and Corporate Wellbeing sectors. Amaven guarantees that everyone receives the care they need; taking into age, ability and medical conditions. The platform is a cost effective and convenient tool that helps schools, sports clubs, health practitioners and employee wellbeing specialists to deliver outstanding care.
