Roadmap MBA, headquartered in Gateshead, aim to bring FREE business education to the world. The company have the mission to “make business education and training accessible to 5 billion people” and were created to bring high-level business skills to regular people without the need to go to business school.

Steve Pugh, Founder and CEO of Roadmap MBA, said: “We believe it shouldn’t matter where you grow up or what your financial background is on deciding if you can access information to help you build a better life for yourself.”

“A good education can help almost everyone. We’re building something which gives the complete roadmap to grow your business or career designed for people with passion not privilege.”

The CPD Certified business, designed as an alternative to a traditional MBA, could give business education and training to millions of people who are unable to access the support from universities or find the time around work or home life to learn new skills which could help them in their career.

Although Roadmap MBA has global ambitions as part of its growth plans, it has every desire to retain its roots in the North East of England.

Steve continued: “Growing up in a single parent family I know the barriers which come with not having enough money and all-to-often people assume you don’t get smart people from poorer backgrounds. We exist to ensure that anyone from any background, anywhere in the world who wants to grow learn and develop now has an option to do that”.

Upon joining Dynamo NE, Steve commented: “We believe that it is important to engage with our local tech community to help us achieve our mission. We know we can’t do it alone and the exceptional talent across the North East will help provide a springboard to support our mission to make business education accessible to 5 billion people.”
