“Martine is a visionary. She has the ability to think big; she envisions the necessary changes to bring about lasting social and environmental change. Martine is truly passionate about what she does, she is dedicated, result-driven, persistent and an effective trouble shooter. In addition she is just a fun person to be with. I’m delighted to partner with her in Africa.”

“ At TNO I’m fully engaged in inclusive innovations in developing countries in order to reach impact at low-income groups. We collaborate with Martine Berger for over a year now, on cold fired brick production in Malawi. Her contribution is valuable; she performed a market study, organised a  working visit and she brought us in contact with the right companies.” I’m enthusiastic about her added value to set up a new value chain abroad. ”

“Like no other Breaking New Business Ground is capable of getting Social Enterprises of the ground. Martine combines years of experience as a social entrepreneur in Africa with great insight in the playing field and she knows all stakeholders involved in turning an innovation into a success.”
