The group is a consulting arm of the Presidio Graduate School, a program in San Francisco that teaches students to approach business decisions with equal emphasis on people, profit and planet. And its unique approach — creating teams of students, alumni, professors and seasoned professionals — acknowledges the urgency for new thinking and creative solutions.”
