Nova Social Consulting is a students’ club based in Nova School of Business and Economics. It comprises 35-40 volunteer student consultants who provide their knowledge and commitment to social enterprises in Portugal.
Our clients are either NGOs or social entrepreneurs who make a difference in their environment and work hard to achieve their goals. In project teams of usually 4-5 students, NSC consultants help those enterprises on topics like fundraising, marketing and starting-up using the skills acquired at one of the best business universities in Portugal.
We offer pro-bono consulting services in a variety of fields to NGOs, social enterprises and nonprofits.
Due to the highly diverse background of NSC consultants, we are able to configure our teams in a way to combine the knowledge and skills necessary to provide the best solution to each individual client. Although we work with organizations on many different topics, our main fields of action are Strategy Evaluation & Formulation, Fundraising and Marketing & Communication.
A good strategy means to know how to achieve one's goals and how to get closer to one's vision. More importantly, a good strategy needs to withstand thorough analysis.
Our team of NSC consultants helps you finding your way and assists you to better understand the implications of your current strategy.

At NSC, we take feedback from our clients into serious consideration and want to stay in touch with them to measure the impact NSC made over the semesters.
