What We Do

Since our first project with UNICEF in 2016 we have carried out intensive projects for a variety of organizations, from large and established NGOs to smaller start-ups. In addition, we have taken on a role as a crucial link between top students at the Graduate Institute and the tools, network, and experiences needed to enter the consulting industry.

Featured Project: Developing a Private-Sector Fundraising Strategy for UNICEF

UNICEF greatly benefited from a top-notch team of consultants from the Graduate Institute this year who supported the Private sector division to develop a robust analysis of UNICEF’s work and future potential with the private sector. The four consultants conducted high quality research and analysis and delivered critical insights to the overall analysis. Their capacity, teamwork, energy and acumen has made them invaluable members of the UNICEF team in the process.
