The Integrated Development Group (IDG) is a student-driven, management consulting group sponsored by University of the Pacific.
What IDG Offers
IDG offers pro-bono consulting to high-impact social entrepreneurs and enterprises. Our group was founded in 2010 to respond to the need among non-profit and sustainable development organizations for low-cost business consulting and other services.
Ninety-five percent of non-profit organizations say that their social impact would grow if they had the support of pro-bono assistance.
We aim to assist in the development and future sustainability of these organizations. We are deeply committed to improving our local, national and international communities.
IDG's portfolio features 20 projects and clients — international and domestic — and includes health care companies, impact investment funds and small- and large-scale nonprofits. Their missions have all been advanced through our work.
To accelerate high impact social entrepreneurs and enterprises through an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving.
