Hear from These Entrepreneurs
The Assessment team employed a well-recognized framework – one that involved Theory of Change – to help us engage higher-level stakeholders. This was important in identifying gaps in service delivery and helped form the basis of design for new programs.
The assessment was conducted professionally. Shujog helped to customise a questionnaire that will come in useful for the purpose of tracking future improvements. In addition, the qualitative responses of service users were helpful in sharing our stories to laymen.
I’ve never felt so thrilled to see what we carried out in the past few months finally come to fruition. All this would not be possible without the guidance and advice offered by you and your team.
We are really enjoying the partnership with IIX and hope that we can keep making progress. We see a lot of value in the relationship, well beyond potential finance.
Our team in Simeulue really enjoyed spending the time with IIX, and we were impressed with the materials they produced. I understand there might be a bit of fine tuning to be done with regard to metrics and measurement approach, but on the whole we felt IIX did an outstanding job of presenting our impact story. Thank you!
Thanks to the Impact Assessment report, TraceVerified was selected as one of 30 startups for SLUSH Global Impact Accelerator in Helsinki in November 2015.
The Assessment team conducted independent Impact Assessment of TraceVerified during September-October 2015. As part of the Impact Assessment, the team met and interviewed with farmers, food producers, government agencies supporting farmers and agriculture in Vietnam, conducted intensive market research, as basis for formulating Theory of Change specifically for the case of TraceVerified.
We thoroughly appreciated the professionalism, objectivity and supportive attitude of the Assessment team throughout the assignment. They engaged TraceVerified team from the beginning of the project and spent a lot of time walking us through the concept formulation, data validation and analysis process. They also helped to develop template and coached our team, so that after this exercise, we will be able to update the Impact Assessment report periodically by ourselves, using their method and templates. This capacity building perspective of the Impact Assessment is highly beneficial to our team. Additionally, they networked us with the investment private placement platform IIX for more impact investment opportunities.
In 2016, TraceVerified was invited by ADB to share experience working with agriculture value chains to facilitate cross-border agrifood trade in the Greater Mekong Sector.
We feel very grateful about working with the Assessment team on the GRAISEA. What an experience!
Working with the Assessment team at the field visit brought us many precious knowledge and experiences to continue to do the impact by our own in the future.
