Better than high-tech – we offer high-TOUCH solutions!
You can see our training program here.
In our trainings we apply our own practical experience in starting and managing social enterprises as well as foreign good practices we have acquired through our international work.
Through our team building method Breadbuilding (see video here), experienced and recommended by some of the biggest companies in Bulgaria, we have created various inspiring “high–TOUCH” role-playing games. Our methods are based on metaphors about bread kneading and drawing in flour, which stimulate innovative thinking and creativity, as well as critical and strategical thinking. We combine creative simulations that help to design innovative products and services with practical workshops for their application and promotion.
Our mission is to share the lessons we have learned while creating our successful social enterprise model Sofia Bread House –Nadezhko Social Bakery (www.nadezhko.com) with other starting social enterprises and with existing business projects that aim to be socially responsible and to improve the social environment.
Our social enterprise brand “NadEzkho” sends the message to avoid pricking others, be above anger and rivalry. We translate the wordplay to different languages used by the organizations we cooperate with:
English: “HedgeHope” (hopping with hope over any hedge/difficulty)
German: “SchutzIgel” (similar to SchutzEngel – guardian angel)
Italian: “SorRiccio” (sorriso – smile; riccio –hedgehog)
And similar in other latin languages:
Portuguese: “SorOuriço” (sorriso –smile; ouriço – hedgehog);
French: SourHérisson (sourire –smile; hérisson – hedgehog).
That is why the spirit, purpose and results of our training and mentorship can be synthesized in our aspiration to help all people and organizations to become “hedgehopes” and change the world by being amiable but also wise, patient and persevering, the qualities typical for a hedgehog as you’ll find out from The Hedgehog business concept applicable worldwide.
Better than hedgeFUND – we create a hedgeHOPE!
The HedgeHOPE and the Hedgehog Concepts
In his bestseller on business strategies Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t the author James C. Collins presents the so called Hedgehog Concept. Collins compares the successful entrepreneurs with the hedgehog and those who fail to achieve their goals with the fox. Referring to world famous fables and fairy tales the author points out the differences between the two types and teaches us how to make the transition from good companies to unique and “great” companies. In our trainings we are going to apply this concept to practice in order to create a successful business plan and an innovative strategy for your enterprise.
Inspired by the concept of James Collins and using our specific experience in starting a social enterprise model and not a standard business, we have developed our complementary HedgeHOPE concept which will be introduced in our trainings and mentorship programs. The HedgeHOPE concept will help you to analyze thoroughly your idea, to correct and improve it where it is necessary. You’ll also be able to develop your project further through workshops designed by us using the fourth new sphere we have added to Collins’ model.
