Helix Consulting

Helix Consulting is a consultancy firm run by students of the study association NWSV Helix, which is linked to Utrecht University. The members of this association are students from a number of study programmes in the field of innovation sciences. These include, but are not limited to: Science and Innovation Management (BSc), Innovation Sciences (MSc), Sustainable Business and Innovation (MSc) and Energy Science (MSc). After graduating, 60% of these students find a job in the consultancy branch.

Our mission

Our mission is to stimulate innovation and sustainability, to provide companies with good advice and to provide students with relevant practical experience. This means for you:

How we work

The first step in starting a case is to find a suitable case team. We do this by promoting the case in our network of over 600 students. After receiving all the applications we carefully select a diverse case team based on their motivation, resume, grades and relevant knowledge & experience for the case in question.

The case team is provided with guidance from one of our project leaders. They also recieve feedback from a teacher of the Department of Innovation, Environmental and Energy Sciences from the Utrecht University and from a feedback team consisting of students and alumni with consultancy experience. Due to this extensive guidance and feedback, we can maintain a consistent level of high quality.

The final results of a case are presented in a format based on the preferences of our client and on the nature of the case. The possibilities include, but are not limited to, a presentation, workshop or report.

During and after a case we constantly evaluate our own processes so that we, as an organisation, can also grow with every new case we work on.

Our History

Helix Consulting was founded on the 23rd of February 2015 in collaboration with the board of the study association NWSV Helix and a number of students. Students found that their study programma paid too little attention to gaining practical experience. Since a majority of the students of NWSV Helix finds a job in the consultancy branch after their graduation, the solution seemed obvious, resulting in the foundation of Helix Consulting.

Since its foundation, Helix Consulting has been providing valuable experience to both the students that work in our case teams as to the committee of project leaders who run Helix Consulting.
