Projects

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.
