* working title
We wanted to create a website that offered policy students the opportunity to work with business on corporate social responsibility and shared value projects. AmericanWonks offers value to both businesses and students alike: Students get to work on real projects, and business gain access to top notch policy expertise at the fraction of the cost of any big consulting firm. We think its a win for both.
