Sample of Consulting Projects

  • Court Appointed Special Advocates, Orange County (CASA-OC)

    Area: Finance
    Year: 2017

    Our team was tasked with developing a top-line revenue generation strategy for CASA-OC.

    180 Degrees made it much easier to help us achieve our aims. It was a pleasure to work with such passionate and energetic students. [180 Degrees'] recommendations will definitely be implemented because of the fact that they did such great analysis on our challenges and research on the effectiveness of their proposed solutions that it would be silly not to implement them. Moreover, they compiled everything together in a fantastic final presentation and report that is invaluable to us.
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County (BBBS-OC)

    Area: Strategy
    Year: 2018

    Our team was tasked with developing a front-of-the-house Bigs acquisition and retention strategy.

    The most valuable part about this project was that the team at 180 Degrees demonstrated an "out-of-the-box" thinking regarding solutions to our problem. The team was cognizant of our budget at all times and provided robust recommendations accordingly. This will ensure the implementation of their recommendations from our side and we definitely would love to pursue another project with them
