About Con·Sense

We support nonprofit organizations, public offices, and companies in strategic and operational matters.

We guide you through processes, work out the foundations for decision-making and jointly develop future-oriented strategies. Always with the goal in mind to achieve a positive impact in society.

As a spin-off of the Center for Philanthropy Studies (CEPS) at the University of Basel, we combine knowledge of current research with many years of practical experience.
