Why work with us

Our decade-long experience in the social and nonprofit fields equips us to deeply comprehend the structural challenges faced by the sector and how they impact individuals, projects, and organizations.

We bring this insider perspective to our consulting practice while also drawing on powerful assets of knowledge from other fields. We amplify the impact of individuals, projects, and organizations by providing them with an integrated suite of offerings, learning experiences, and tools for change-making.

“Constanza's advice was accurate and stimulating. We were able to share valuable creative exchanges and respond to challenges with the necessary speed and precision.”
"In June 2020, the Sala Mendoza Foundation conducted the Online Organizational Culture Laboratory for artistic and cultural institutions. Directed by Constanza Mendoza, it was an unprecedented initiative in Venezuela, as organizational thinking in the cultural field tends to lack training offers not linked to academia.

With a focus on creating strong and competent organizational structures, the program conveyed the vital need and routes to defining mission, vision, and values. Constanza managed to develop a memorable and useful experience that generates fundamental reflections beyond the field of cultural management and organizational culture."
