DEEPLY USER-CENTERED APPROACH
We leverage Design Thinking methods to structure the semester and challenges. We train our consultants user centric and agile methodologies to empower them on their journey with 180DC, but also for everything that follows later!
ACCESSIBILITY AND COLLABORATION
We believe in handing knowledge forward, from person to person. We are proud to have a network of experts, trainers and mentors who invest in our consultants. This often includes a personal touch, offering opportunities to chat and connect.
OUR BRANCH IS
We foster building diversely skilled and international teams in order to challenge what we know, learn and grow from each other and offer the best possible results to our clients. Our branch is the only one from the DACH region completely run in English.
We carefully recruit top university students from around the world. We then match consultants in diverse and interdisciplinary teams with social enterprises - based on their expertise, qualifications, interests, abilities, and knowledge.
During the semester we provide our consultants with professional training and personal mentoring so that they develop as future social impact leaders.
Real World Experience
There are over 10 million social organizations worldwide working to alievate real-world social and environmental challenges. Yet less than 1% of these nonprofits have access to high-quality and affordable consulting services to help them overcome strategic, financial and operational challenges they’re facing.
This creates an estimated social impact loss of $100 billion annually.
We work with a strong focus on User-Centered Design in order to understand in depth the needs of the people affected by a challenge and keep this focus while developing innovative - yet practically implementable - ideas for solutions, prototyping and testing.
This consulting process is carefully managed to ensure quality control - ensuring the work is useful and has tangible impact.
I was an international student new to Berlin. I was introduced to 180 through my professor, and when I researched the organization, I immediately knew this was what I wanted to be a part of. Not only was I given an amazing opportunity for hands-on growth and development that you just don't get in Uni - I was able to meet and build a wonderful network of social entrepreneurs, collegues and friends!
