Young Entrepreneur Scholarship Awarded

We have offered a ‘young entrepreneur’ scholarship for our TNG Business Escalator Course to Ben Male of Inbound.

Inbound is a small boutique marketing startup that’s changing the way kiwi businesses grow online. Ben’s background is in sustainability and personal fitness.  He is a CrossFit East Auckland coach and has been since 2014.  Before then Ben was an intern and before that an athlete. Ben’s background in sustainability stems from his years at Auckland University – studying a Bachelor of Commerce with Honors in Management.

Surprisingly with management, there’s a bunch of ethics and sustainability papers: these grabbed Ben’s interest and quickly became his focus. He graduated in 2014, and in 2015, he co-founded Blue Cars, an electric car-hire company. At the end of 2015 he jumped on board with a colleague Steven to run his free-lance SEO business, BigBangly. Since then, they’ve shifted and formed Inbound, and now runs that as an Inbound Marketing Agency.

Ben says “This year has been a huge learning curve for me, and I’m keen to push harder, learn more, and create even better results! I’m really pumped to have the opportunity to do TNG’s Escalator Program, I know it’s going to help me so much. Looking forward to it!”
