NYC Housing Partnership

About: The NYC Housing Partnership assists in the development, promotion, and revitalization of affordable homeownership and rental housing through an array of specialized programs and services. For over 30 years, the Housing Partnership has been the facilitator of dynamic partnerships between the City, State, and private sectors to build affordable homes which stimulate economic growth and revitalize neighborhoods throughout New York City’s five boroughs. They are currently facing increased challenges in their core business due to the diminishing supply of housing, changing regulations, and increased competition.
Project: This is an interesting real estate/government/finance-oriented project in which PennPAC will assist the NYC Housing Partnership in assessing the fit and attractiveness of three opportunity areas under consideration. The areas are: mergers and acquisitions with distressed housing nonprofits, small lending, and development.

One to World Logo

One to World

About: One To World (OTW) was created nearly 40 years ago to engage international students in American life, but has become so much more. It builds life-long understanding and respect among people across the globe. Its flagship program, Global Classroom, engages international students who come to study in NY-area institution as teachers and ambassadors in underserved K-12 classrooms, with curriculum-based learning opportunities focused on cross-cultural themes and global issues. OTW seeks to diversify and strengthen its revenue base through the addition of fee for service programs.
Project: PennPAC will assist OTW in evaluating two potential new revenue streams.  One of the opportunities is to provide intercultural workshops to their membership organizations (NY-area colleges and universities) to train their staff in supporting and retaining international students.  The other opportunity is to market their flagship program, Global Classroom, as a fee-based program to independent K-12 schools and other interested parties.  As part of this evaluation, PennPAC will conduct a market analysis for both opportunities and a go to market strategy.
