Small information nudges can help people make decisions with dramatic improvements in their welfare. Through web platforms, apps, and text messaging and leveraging advanced data and technology solutions, ConsiliumBots works with local governments to provide tailored and timely information on educational options and strategies for students, from choosing a school or a college major to navigating complicated financial aid structures. ConsiliumBots has completed dozens of projects around the world, creating the evidence base and charting a pathway for others to follow.
GDI provided initial startup support to help set ConsiliumBot’s strategic direction, organizational design and staffing plan, and governance structure. GDI also served as its initial home, providing financial and operational support and helping to set up the new entity.
