If you believe in your idea and yourself, apply to BfE. If you get accepted, this means you too are lucky to have consultancy work from this extremely professional and great team! Your success here!




The BfE team is extremely supportive and keen to engage and support the consulting assignment. The consulting team was good. The team was able to work on a broad range of ideas as well as drill down on a few specific ideas.


Patients Engage,


Your team is doing exceptional work. Startups, especially in social sector, require a lot of hand holding and support. By supporting these startups, you are helping them multiply their impact. It is very thoughtful of you to support such initiatives.




I am very impressed with BfE'shelp in managing the engagement, the relationships, and the project. Very professional and thoughtful work. Givo has definitely benefited from the brains of the consulting team, and we are now ready to implement many of these recommendations.​
