This project was done in collaboration with our sister branch in Peru. We gave recommendations to a Peruvian social enterprise on how they could market and sell their handmade baby shoes in the American market.

"Thank you very much for your help, work and amazing final results; the Puriy team is very grateful and happy because now they have the tools to help their internationalization."


Operational Efficiency

The UCLA branch worked with WVIA to improve nightlife in Westwood Village, better voice business owners’ concerns, and streamline the process of opening a new business in the UCLA area.

"Thank you and your team for putting this (report) together. These areas are going to be a focus of the Westwood Village Improvement Association's work over the next year, so your efforts are appreciated and valued. I'll definitely recommend 180 Degrees (in the future)."



The branch conducted extensive consumer research and used the insights to create a comprehensive brand identity and an integrated, targeted marketing plan for them to reach the students in high schools all over the U.S.

“We very much enjoyed our collaboration with the UCLA team. They were very attentive to all of our project requirements and were great at keeping us updated on their progress throughout the entire engagement. The final deliverable exceeded our expectations, and our organization has benefited from it immensely.”
