"The Advise for Change team supported us at a critical stage of our development. Efficiently, patiently and pedagogically, the team members who were working with us helped us todefine a communications plan while improving our team’s competencies in communications, double benefits for us! Their professional and caring support also helped us to review our business plan and to simplify our model to make it more readable and thus more efficient. A great team at the service of social entrepreneurs!” 

Claire ESCRIVA – Ecolocrèche – Director of the association « Atelier Méditerranéen de l’Environnement »

"As a social entrepreneur, I consider that the mission established with “Advise for Change”went further our expectations thanks to the definition, in a record timing and with a high level of expertise, evaluation tools and a business plan that allow us now to handle our development. Each step of this mission was carefully prepared and conducted in optimal conditions. The final result is remarkable."

Jean-Louis KIEHL – Crésus – Ashoka Fellow, Director of Crésus Alsace and President of the federation

Without them, nothing would be possible...

20 young professionals with very different backgrounds, sharing the same values: pragmatism, empathy and open to change.

Associations or entrepreneurs’ network that put us in contact with social innovators willing to scale up but lacking some competencies to be able to do so.

Firms that provide us with financial or in kind support, enabling the development of our activities.
