Boston University 180 Degrees Consulting is committed to delivering consulting services to nonprofits and social impact organizations in the Boston area. Founded in 2017, we are a fast growing branch with experienced & dedicated consultants to help our clients make an impact.

Our associates not only gain practical experience and first-hand exposure to Boston’s social enterprises, but also receive professional training from major consulting firms. By connecting passionate individuals and fully equipping them to find effective and innovative solutions to real-world challenges, we develop a community of leaders and social-thinkers.

Whether you are a socially conscious organization interested in becoming a 180 Degrees Consulting client, or a student interested in becoming a 180 Degrees consultant, we are excited to hear from you and explore what 180 Degrees can offer you.


Last semester, 180 Degrees Consulting worked with Technology Exchange Labs (TEL), an NGO based in Cambridge, MA, whose goal is to match solution-providers with solution-seekers in the areas of agriculture, health, sanitation, and many more. In order to further their mission, TEL sought to add a consulting-like business stream to their model, where they would be able to provide a tailored service for solution-seekers, who needed to find providers that fit very specific criteria. Led by Marlon Li, our 180 Degrees Consulting team worked throughout the semester on:

  • Researching what customer segments would be the most attractive to pursue with this new service,
  • What the current sector looked like in terms of competition and what price model would be the best to pursue within the sector.
  • Building a financial planning tool that would allow TEL to measure the impact one or multiple projects will have on their overall balance sheet.

At the end of the semester, the 180 team successfully delivered their recommendation to TEL marking the completion of the Boston University’s branch first project.
