Our client engagements typically last for 12 weeks during the Spring Semester (February – May) and/or the Fall Semester (September – December). Our teams are made up of students from all academic disciplines, class years, and experience levels. Our consultants go through a rigorous and competitive application process and are trained to handle all project tasks assigned to them.
In the past, we have worked with clients that range from a food truck owner to an inventor and have conducted research at Penn and in the larger Philadelphia community. We have experience working with and understanding various regulations set in place by the local city government and as students, have access to many resources afforded by the university.
