We’re EDGE, and we offer consulting since 2009.
As an agile organisation, we believe in two things: the impactful projects we take the lead on, and the fantastic team we rely on.
We initially specialized in the ICT, Utility & Postal industries. Over the years, the experience accumulated by our consultants and our willingness to have a positive impact on society through our missions have led us to look towards innovative projects in the areas of soft and innovative mobility, the decarbonization of the economy or the implementation of out-of-the-box health solutions for local African populations. [VN1](You can check them out right here link to articles)
Most of all, we thrive in creating and maintaining a trustworthy relationship with our ecosystem (client, team member, alumni and partners).
Quick Relatable Story why and how Edge was set up (2009 Economic Crisis)
In 2009, at the heart of the subprime crisis, a few of us decided it was time to create an ambitious business venture which we hoped would enable us to make a difference in challenging [VN2]and useful projects with like-minded clients and to build and shape a human and united consulting boutique eager to make a positive impact on society.
This is how EDGE came to be. Since then, we have enjoyed working hard on making every aspect of this project a success, be it the assignments of our clients that we have worked on or the building of a team that is based on trust, affinities, complementarities and shared values. This has allowed us to deliver insightful and sometimes challenging and unexpected recommendations to our clients. Throughout this intense and rewarding journey, we have always been stimulating change and doing our best to have a say in this ever-changing world we live in.
Where some see change and disruption brought by new technologies as an unwelcome constraint or a threat, we see these as a platform for positive and impactful innovations.
Where some see us as optimists, we see ourselves as dreamers. Our past achievements and future projects are and will be a pledge to our commitment to turning our dreams into reality and to having a positive and hopefully sustainable impact on our society.
We are EDGERS; are you ?
“Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." -Gloria Steinem
