Welcome to the Helsinki branch of 180 Degrees Consulting!

180 Degrees is the world’s largest non-profit student-driven consultancy. Our Helsinki branch was founded in 2017. Our students volunteer to participate in projects for NGOs and non-profit organizations. Many NGOs are doing great work but they lack resources, and on the other hand, students are looking for opportunities to learn and eager to help. 180 Degrees exists to connect the two together. 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.

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, broaden their horizon and professionalize their skills.

If you would like to be a part of our branch (either as a client, as a consultant, or as a supporter), then please get in contact with us!
