EMN member company Globalbridge has been listed as one of 19 companies to watch in 2019.
Globalbridge was nominated by Paul Lancaster, founder of Newcastle Start-Up Week.
GlobalBridge is a unique digital platform that bridges the gap between students, universities and employers.
A bit like a LinkedIn for kids, it’s a way for secondary school, college and university students to display their non-academic skills and talents in a safe environment for academic institutions and employers to see, improving the chances of them following the career path of their choice.
Founded by teachers with a deep understanding of the gaps in current careers advice provision, GlobalBridge allows young people to showcase their talents and achievements to educational institutions and industry, while allowing them to search for schools, universities and businesses that offer the opportunities they are seeking.
With a fantastic leadership team, investors and advisers, plus widespread support from businesses, schools, colleges, universities, local authorities and Local Enterprise Agencies across the UK, GlobalBridge has the potential to radically improve the future of student/employer engagement and close the UK & global skills gap.
