Meet the founders!
Global Grad is a Community Interest Company founded in 2017 by father, Steff Wright and daughter, Georgia Wright. A community interest company is a business with primary social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community.
After deferring her place at University, Georgia set out on her gap year at 18 years old, keen to travel the world, experiencing things first-hand. Her gap year turned into three years of working and travelling around the world, visiting 30 countries. Whilst being able to gain invaluable life experiences through volunteering on environmental projects and overcoming challenges of travelling and working, she still didn’t get the business degree she had planned to study for.
On returning to the UK the thought of being tied down to three years of traditional education was one which didn’t appeal to Georgia and it was that point that the idea for Global Grad was born.
Steff has spent his working life building a group of successful companies and has an enthusiasm for innovation across different sectors. He also shares Georgia’s passion for travel and has always seen great value in employing individuals who can demonstrate they have diverse life experience alongside academic qualifications. Global Grad was therefore given access to the resources and support of the Gusto Group to get it up and running.
The highly motivated Global Grad team are committed to supporting learners wanting to combine the academic benefits of online study with the experiential benefits of global travel, responsible volunteering and being part of a growing community of Global Grads.
