London-based digital talent pool MBA & Company raises a further £800K

MBA & Company, a global marketplace that provides companies with elite strategy consultants for short-term projects, has raised another £800K from existing investors MMC Ventures and Piton Capital, taking the company’s total funding to over £2 million (Update – May 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business under this website, and we therefore deactivated the original link).

MBA & Company’s service is an alternative to a more traditional hiring of interims and consultancies, by providing a marketplace that connects businesses of all sizes to a vetted pool of high quality project professionals. With 20,000 consultants in its network, MBA & Company has grown geographically, and in breadth of expertise, to become equivalent in size to a global top-ten management consultancy firm. Strategic and operational projects have been completed in 50 countries and across 40 industries, collectively saving its clients £30 million compared to using traditional consultancies. The London-based startup was founded in 2009.

The startup’s clients range from entrepreneurs looking for pre-launch research and support, through to multinational companies and investment houses. For instance, recent projects have been completed for Rubicon Partners, HgCapital, General Motors, Pizza Hut and Sharp.

This latest funding is the second phase of last year’s MMC Ventures and Piton Capital funding round, and will be used to scale the business internationally, as well as for a new ‘on-demand’ model where ad hoc project work is delivered through instant access to the global pool of independent professionals.
