HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The township has partnered with a group of local student business consultants that will be dedicated to working with local businesses over a 10-week period.
NeuLook Consulting, a newly-formed pro bono organization based in Hillsborough, will assign teams of student consultants to individual businesses and offer a variety of services from market strategies to competitive analysis, and more.
Businesses will meet wit NeuLook consultants 2-3 times to outline their goals and expectations. The culmination of the project will be a final presentation where the student consultants will deliver their analysis and recommendations to the business management.
“Hillsborough Township is also excited to support an organization that will give students an invaluable experience to learn about business firsthand, learn professional soft skills, and grow as leaders” said Mayor Doug Tomson. NeuLook’s comprehensive education program is designed to challenge students and teach them important skills related to critical thinking and analysis, as well as training in business and strategy.
NeuLook Consulting was founded by Smay Shah and Rajas Chordiya, students at Rutgers University. They look to apply what they have learned as consultants for the Rutgers Consulting Group to help local businesses and mentor high school students.
This is not the first time they have been involved with the town, as they both previously served as REACH (Reach, Explore Academic and Creative Heights) interns, a gifted and talented senior intern program at Hillsborough High School, under Hillsborough Township’s Business Advocate David Kois.
