After Venport's old friend (and later wife) Norma Cenva revealed her discovery of how [[Space folding|space folding]] could be achieved, VenKee Enterprises invested significant resources into her research. Prototype construction begun on Poritrin, but it was suddenly suspended by order of Lord Niko Bludd, moved by [[Tio Holtzman]], who saw Cenva antagonistically. The work relocated to [[Kolhar]], but by that time, Tuk Keedair was presumed dead, actually stranded on [[Arrakis]].

Cenva's theories were eventually proven successful in practice, despite the high risks in using the [[spacefolder]]s. Because of the forceful appropriation of many VenKee vessels by the [[Army of the Jihad]], Venport demanded that VenKee Enterprises and its [[Spacing Guild/XD|successors]] be granted irrevocable patents on Cenva's technology, as proprietary treatment for this form of space travel. For his offer however, he was awarded the [[Manion Cross]].

However, by the time VenKee Enterprises was seeing gain from the [[Spacefolder]] venture, its two founders were no longer in charge: Venport having died in an attack by [[cymek]]s; and Keedair having mysteriously vanished during the destruction on Poritrin. Management of VenKee Enterprises was taken over by Norma Cenva and [[Adrien Venport|Adrien]], her eldest son with Aurelius.

The revelation that the Spice Melange could be used to fend off the [[Omnius Scourge]] virus ironically proved to be a disadvantage to VenKee Enterprises. On discovering the fortification powers of the spice, the [[League of Nobles]] quickly broke a previous promise they had made with the company and denied them exclusive rights to [[spice mining]] on [[Arrakis]]. Though they still made money from the mining operations, their interests were severely eroded by countless outside parties who descended on the planet in a [[spice rush]].
