The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“I applied to become a Millennium Fellow because I wanted to join a community that was dedicated and determined to making a positive impact on the world.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Young Consultant
The Young Consultant (TYC), London, and De Kleine Consultant (DKC), The Netherlands, are student led consulting firms that provide strategic advice where it creates the highest value, primarily with social enterprises and startups. We believe that sustainable economic growth requires the facilitation of conditions that allows for quality training and employment in a way that stimulates the local economy whilst not harming the environment. We are passionate about building capacity in higher education systems and we do so by providing our consultants with an opportunity for the practical application of entrepreneurship and leadership to have an impact in their communities. Our model is a win-win formula: students are given quality training and the opportunity for personal development whilst customers receive advice on diversification, technological upgrading and innovation. This semester our London division aims to train 15 consultants to provide strategic support across a minimum of two new social enterprise initiatives.
