In a fast-changing world, the success of an organization depends on the ability of the team to collaborate.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that extraordinary things are done when people work in sync with their innate competencies and skills. The performance of people in teams peaks when they feel safe, have clarity on what is required and feel strong connection to the business’ purpose.
Organizations which promote open and conscious conversations will be able to leverage everybody’s capacities and insights thus driving achievement of goals. This is especially important for companies in fast-changing environments.
Our innovation is about bring these beliefs into organizations, support leaders in creating the right environment and help improve results. Using experience from 4 continents and quickly adapting to each business reality, we tackle teams’ performances challenges.

In 2004 edge was launched in Brazil to help build the right talent systems in the ecosystem for innovative businesses serving low-income clients. We have since worked with over 250 businesses and teams across Latin America, East Africa, India and Europe.
In nearly 15 years we have developed a deep understanding of the talent-related needs of growth-oriented businesses and grassroot social enterprises. We realized that when it comes to understanding how to improve team performance, start-ups and fast-growing businesses have trouble finding a reliable partner who acknowledges their needs.
We have conducted thorough research within the ecosystem, finding exciting needs and opportunities. Players in the enterpreneurship ecoystem currently direct lots of energy towards making investments in established businesses. More effort could be spent on enabling these companies to perform beyond expectations. Although talent is repeatedly flagged as a key issue by management teams around the world, few local ecosystems address this systemic challenge.
In 2014 the edge team set out to becoming a full provider of solutions to support fast-growing companies to achieve their best possible performance. Based in Nairobi, we have worked with over 50 organizations across East Africa – and the journey continues!
