What We Do?
At DSO, we partner with top international development organizations to deliver customized strategic decisions and convert those decisions into executable actions. Our goal is to help our clients create sustainable business models that ensure their long-term economic success and deliver innovative, market-based solutions that foster economic development.
How we do accomplish our work?
At DSO, we create consulting teams of volunteer professionals from different renowned corporations who mentor and lead students from prestigious universities to work on semester long projects with international development clients.
What types of international development clients do we look for?
We look for clients who are making a strong impact in the international development sector who have consulting needs that can be addressed from abroad. Due to our volunteer model, one of our constraints is that the majority of the work must be done virtually.
