About Potential Project

We are based in 27 countries, serving 300+ companies through our network of 200 independent consultants. Our client base is mainly large companies like Microsoft, Accenture, Cisco, Ikea etc.

Potential Project is based on not-for-profit principles. Instead of paying dividends to owners, we reinvest in our people or donate to charities.
