Lead investors Claire Lincoln-White and David Newland of New Link Consulting joined over 200 backers from across the globe who raised £413,000 to help scale the impact and reach of the digital career development platform.

The crowdfunding campaign raised 186% of its target and the funds will now be invested into the development of the Career Masterclass platform, to hire key staff and on marketing and broader brand penetration.

600x200 (4)Career Masterclass CEO, Bukola Adisa said: “We are delighted to have Claire and David on board, they bring a wealth of business knowledge and experience to Career Masterclass and their confidence in us is confirmation that we are providing not only a much-needed service but one with proven success in transforming careers. As a result of this new funding we look forward to taking even greater strides forward, to promote our ethos and to reach and inspire even more under-represented and unsupported professionals to achieve a more fulfilling career.”

Claire Lincoln-White added: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with Bukola and her talented team at Career Masterclass and contribute to the next stage of the company’s growth. Working along-side Career Masterclass, our passion is to break the cycle around diversity, promote an equitable playing field where everybody, who chooses to, are  included. We are excited to bring our expertise to contribute to the company’s strategic evolution and to help advance its impact on diversity, equity and inclusion across the industry.”

Exciting times ahead for Career Masterclass!

Incidentally, diversity and Inclusion will be high on the agenda of our upcoming hybrid Work: In Progress event. We’d love you to join us!
