The Harvard College Consulting Group is a student-run, not-for-profit organization devoted to improving communities in Harvard and beyond.
Founded in 2000 by a couple of young, enterprising Harvard undergraduates, the Harvard College Consulting Group has since grown to become one of the largest students groups on campus. The organization's great success is rooted in its unique approach to member involvement.

"HCCG provided us with thorough research above and beyond expectations that contributed directly to our active expansion into a new geographic market. The team was professional, prompt, and committed."
Jay Bacrania, Co-Founder, Veritas Tutors LLC
"HCCG is a fantastic organization for providing insight into the undergraduate market. As we have marketed and sold products and services oriented towards high school and college students, our HCCG teams have provided unique value with their diligent research, creativity, and insight. I will certainly work with the Harvard College Consulting Group again."
"HCCG was a pleasure to work with, providing us with not just strategic thinking, but fresh insight as well. Not only did their hard work give us data we needed, they also presented it in a perspective we wouldn't have otherwise been able to see it from. Anyone looking for good work done right should have HCCG at the top of their list."
Jonah Bliss, Marketing Manager, RelayRides
"I was very impressed with the professionalism and thoughtfulness of the HCCG Team. Their final product exceeded my expectations and they brought considerable new perspectives on the key business issues to light. It was a pleasure to work with Anna and her team at HCCG and I look forward to engaging the group on another project very soon."
Michael Libert, Mzinga, Inc.
"I had a great experience working with HCCG last semester. They gave us some great insights and made an important contact for us with Nordstrom. I would say strengths were: instant grasp of our concepts and needs, great analytical skills, great overall presentations."
Yifan Zhang, Styleta
"Amazing! A small cadre of HCCG undergraduate students quickly grasped our non-profilt organization's fundraising and public image challenges, and designed a comprehensive and practical blue-print to help us move forward. A great example of university and non-profit/private sector cooperation to make a positive difference in the world."
Blair & Cindy Packard, Founders, Care for Life
"I can't believe they're are only students! The HCCG team was able to provide us with invaluable feedback on our company's website as well as our business model. Kayva and motivated team conducted themselves in a professional manner, demonstrated superior analytical skills and executed well on every deliverable. We look forward to working HCCG again next semester."
Chris Kleinhen, TipTap
"HCCG brought fresh insight into one of the trickiest problems facing a collaboration technology startup like Podio -- which markets to target and how to position our offerings. The team was organized, hard-working, and delivered fact-based recommendations that helped Podio launch into 2 new market segments."
Ryan Nichols, VP Apps, Podio Collaborative Work Platform
