Welcome to the 180 Degrees Consulting Helsinki branch!

“There are enough charities to solve the world’s problems. They just need a hand to reach their potential.” (Nat Ware-Founder & CEO of 180 Degrees Consulting)

180 Degrees Consulting is the world’s largest university-based consultancy. Many NGOs are doing great work but they often lack resources; at the same time, students are looking for opportunities to learn and they are eager to apply their knowledge to tackle NGOs’ problems. Therefore, 180 Degrees Consulting exists to connect the two with each other.

The Helsinki branch was founded in 2017. Our mission is to help local NGOs or social enterprises in Finland maximize their social impact by providing high-quality consulting services. We enable students to make a social or environmental impact when teaming up during our 10-week pro bono projects. They will work closely with our partners from different fields, have guidance from prestigious consulting firms through our networks, broaden their horizons, and professionalize their skills.

We believe that when NGOs and non-profits become more effective and efficient in what they do, they can reach out to even more people and achieve greater social impact.
