Who we are and what we do

With over 100 branches in over 30 countries, 180 Degrees Consulting is the world’s leading, university-based consultancy. On a global scale, over 8000 consultants have worked on over 2500 projects. The Hamburg branch was founded in 2015. Ever since, we created social change by consulting over 25 social businesses and NGOs in the Hamburg area and by working with over 100 student consultants.

180 Degrees Consulting Hamburg connects the expertise of students with the needs of social enterprises and NGOs. We determine the root of our clients’ problems, helping them streamline their work and enhance their social impact on the society. Our work is built on top of the following pillars: social impact, community, sustainability, and empathy.

During each cycle, our consultants get prepared to work with social organizations and their social-impact-based business models. Workshops and training are provided by us and our partners to ensure that everyone develops professional and social skills. We learn together about our strengths and weaknesses to understand how synergies can be created within groups with people with different backgrounds.
