Social Excellence was really a catalyst for us in our national expansion strategy. We’ve actually been able to work with a team of specialist consultants who have helped us create a process and a plan that is really valid and valuable. With that in hand, we were able to go to funders, access funding and also get other resources like MBA students interested in working with us.

Social OPEX really works. Social entrepreneurs are always trying to take things to scale, but you can’t always do it on your own. Getting other organizations to partner with you is really important. But don’t just do it as something periphery.  We’ve given Allianz a ‘live’ piece of work, something that’s on top of our agenda that’s challenging us, the results of which are going to form part of our ongoing work. I think this is key, because it makes Social OPEX so much more effective.

The energy the Allianz team inspired is still palpable. We are moving actively forward with the implementation now. aidha will be much stronger for all of this!
