Daniel Callaghan and Adam Riccoboni, both 32
MBA & Company

Listed in our Startups 100 2012 and winner of the Startups Business Plan of the Year 2011, Daniel Callaghan’s online marketplace for MBA-level freelancers has gone from strength to strength since inception. Using the platform, companies can find business school graduates by posting contracts online, which the MBAs competitively bid for using an eBay-style rating system. Callaghan has overseen the remarkable growth of MBA & Company to become a leader in the management consultancy sector – more than £500,000 worth of work a week is now posted on the platform, helping to drive revenues of £2m, a figure which the young entrepreneur expects to double by the end of the year.

20,000 consultants are now part of the MBA & Company network, helping to generate more than £20m in projects completed across 130 countries. The business marked an investment coup earlier this year when it secured £800,000 MMC Ventures-led funding, taking its total backing to more than £2m and enabling Callaghan to launch a unique on-demand service which is set to allow businesses to receive ad-hoc project work delivered instantly from the marketplace’s growing pool of consultants.
