The Member Spotlight project stands as a cornerstone of our suite of services, designed to illuminate the remarkable efforts of our member organizations within the Small and Growing Business (SGB) ecosystem. Following a thoughtful evaluation of our traditional format, we are delighted to unveil an evolved initiative that features insightful, interview-based articles and harnesses the compelling formats of video storytelling.

We aim to foster a deeper, more interconnected community by spotlighting the vital contributions of our members. Our team will disseminate the content across ANDE’s digital platforms—our website, social media, and global newsletters—ensuring your organization’s endeavors resonate within and beyond our network.

Let’s center our network’s attention on the work done by our organization. Your involvement will enhance the ANDE community and create opportunities for more collaborative and engaging exploration of the SGB ecosystem. To be chosen as a featured member, please follow the instructions in the form.

ANDE PAGE SEPARATORThe Interview Experience

In preparation for our dialogue, we will provide a structured questionnaire and identify critical themes to highlight, crafting an interview that delves into the heart of your organization’s impact on the SGB ecosystem. We envision a conversation lasting around 30 minutes, accompanied by a video—whether professionally produced or a straightforward recording using a smartphone—to enhance the narrative of your story.

Should scheduling prove challenging, an alternative approach allows for a written response to our agreed questionnaire via Google Docs, facilitating a collaborative refinement process before publication. In this scenario, the member is responsible for creating a video, following specific guidelines, which ANDE’s communications team will edit and, together with the text interview, distribute across social media.
