Founder and Branch President Emeritus
Class of 2016

Welcome to 180 Degrees Consulting at NYU and thank you for taking some time to visit our website. We are a donation-based, student run consultancy, focused on delivering high quality advisory services to non-profits and social impact organizations. Since our branch’s founding in January of 2014, we have strived to leverage the potential of high performing university students in order to solve some of the more pressing challenges facing today’s non-profits. We believe that by helping our clients adopt a more business-minded approach to non-profit management, we can unlock social value in our community. In the past we have advised organizations such as The Salvation Army and Kiva on challenges related to fundraising, impact measurement, and human capital.

Whether you are visiting this site as a student, interested in joining our team, or as a member of the social impact community, curious about our services, I invite you to spend a moment navigating the site and learning more about our organization. We appreciate your time, and we’re glad that you share our passion for service.
