Curricula and Co started back in 2013 to build on a passion for people. We saw a need to work with people at their own pace to help them get out of their old thinking patterns, and to empower them to move out of the same circles they have been going around and around for years, and to start dreaming of something better.
Before Anita Frost started Curricula and Co, she had trained and worked as a social worker, and though she persisted at it for a long time, then redundancy became the twist to new change - Anita push past her limits, and when she had done that, she wanted to do the same for many others.
The company started off focused on helping young people get their heads around business and employability, and on making these things accessible to them, and busting some of the myths that surround these very ‘adult’ things that seem so far away.
As Curricula and Co started to gain momentum over its first few years, we began to expand our reach to all ages, and all levels of business progress, not just start-ups. Because everyone still has growing and expanding to do, even when they have moved up a few levels...
Curricula & Co started in 2013 by Anita Frost, based on a passion to provide the very best support to people in business and in career progression, creating opportunities that are easily accessible, that provide the right pathways for people to thrive and grow in, whatever stage they are at.
As well as seeing start-ups grow to become big names in business, we have helped hundreds of young people in schools and educational settings to have a go and get their hands dirty in the real world of business and careers, through our collaborations with a great collection of partnerships with other businesses.

Shaun Mcbride - Artist and Social Media Personality
Known online as Shonduras, Shaun Mcbride is famous for his ‘finger drawing’ artwork on YouTube and Snapchat. He also owns a gaming company, is great at skateboarding, and is a father of two.
It all started when, just like anyone would, Shaun made himself a Snapchat account to post about his and his family’s daily life. He started drawing on the app, and sent his creations just to family members. It gradually spread to hs family’s friends, and then his audience began to grow organically until soon he was able to turn Snapchat into his fulltime job when he began to use sponsored ads. He is the first person to become a celebrity through Snapchat.
He creates new content on a daily basis, and this has taken him on some crazy adventures, including walking with a tiger, riding an elephant in Thailand, and flying over the glaciers in Alaska in a helicopter. Nothing is off limits. As well as the adventurous stuff, he shares his daily activities, turning them into stories, such as hanging out with friends and even visits to the dentist!

Lauren Bath - Traveller and Professional Instagrammer
After 12 years working as a chef, Lauren Bath, from Australia, jacked in her job to become a photographic marketer using everyone’s favourite social media platform, Instagram!
Though being a chef was something she loved, the 33 year old’s other passion was photography. It was hard work, but Lauren was determined to make it happen. When she quit her job, Instagram was in its infancy. Ahead of her time, Lauren saw great potential in it as a way of earning money. She invented her job herself, and developed it as she went along.
A big part of her job involves travelling, scouting for new locations, and working on campaigns for clients, which include journalists, tourism boards, and much more.
As well as her creative work, she runs her own consultancy service, passing on her knowledge and passion to other people. She has thought ahead that if Instagram starts to become less popular, she has another thing to fall back on that has great potential for growth and success.

Syed Balkhi - IT Entrepreneur
Perfection is a curse.
Innovation can be messy.
Learn and improve.
Syed Moiz Balkhi was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and moved with his family to America in his early childhood.
After doing spectacularly well on a test, he jumped two years ahead, and started high school at the age of 12! (In the USA, children start high school at the age of 14, after middle school). During his time in high school, young Syed started experimenting with Wordpress, and became very good at it. Later on, he took on a team of people who would create websites for clients.
While this was happening, he realised that a common problem that kept arising was that his customers were not sure how to use Wordpress. He saw a need for a learning facility to help people get the most out of it. This prompted him to create a tutorial website attached to Wordpress, called WPBeginner. This was almost immediately made available to the wider public. This led to him being invited to be the keynote speaker at a number of WordCamp conferences.
Before he had started getting involved with wordpress, and web development, Balkhi’s first love was cricket. He had been a keen player in high school, but had put it on hold in order to pursue his newer projects. But this was definitely not the end…
Some time later, he returned to his love of cricket. He used his marketing skills to get more people interested in the sport in the USA. He became a Board Member of Cricket Council USA.
Aside from his entrepreneurial endeavours, Syed Balkhi has accomplished a lot in philanthropy as well, playing a key role in the building of brand new schools in places including Guatemala and Cambodia. He also has a keen interest in commercial real-estate.
Today, he owns several online businesses, and is an investor in many more.
