BASECAMP SKILLS BACKGROUND
Basecamp Skills was initially launched with a clear mission: to address a pressing issue facing businesses, which was finding the right digital marketing talent.
Our co-founders Dominic McGregor, David Newns and Charlie Yates know firsthand that a company’s success depends heavily on the people it employs. So, in true fearless fashion, they hired former COO at Northcoders Amy Wild and embarked on providing a solution to this challenge.
On the 10th of October 2022, Basecamp | Formerly The Fearless Academy , launched its first industry-led bootcamp with 25 northern-based students. With diversity at its core, this training scheme was built to nurture, coach, and develop anyone over 19 eager to retrain or upskill in all things digital.
61% of Cohort 1 learners came to Basecamp Skills unemployed and they assisted 85% into new roles or helped freelancers boost their businesses with new contracts.
And they’ve been busy since then…
🚀 Opening 2 Campuses in Manchester and Liverpool
🚀 Teaching over 200 learners and counting
🚀 Supporting over 50 businesses in building out their digital marketing teams with our untapped talent pool

Fearless Adventures has always supported our investment portfolio in building industry-leading teams at every level. But we wanted to do more.
