Ben Hallett is the co-founder and CEO of Vygo. Vygo is the one-stop hub for student support. For students, the Vygo platform organises all of their institution's support services at their fingertips and gives them the tools to connect with the people they need, whenever they need them, wherever they are. For education institutions, Vygo helps them organise, digitise and optimise their student support services to drive student retention, wellbeing and success. Along with his co-founders, Ben created Vygo after witnessing the power of mentorship within his university's refugee mentoring program. The Vygo platform is now being utilized by leading higher education institutions around the globe. In 2020 Ben also launched TheMentor.Academy, a not-for-profit initiative focussed on creating free online mentoring training for 100,000 college students.

Using your experience to build a business

Ben Hallet observed a personal problem as a university student, he graduated and went into the profession he had studied. When the realisation dawned that his experience was being felt by other students, it led him to founding Vygo and a platform that supports students locally and internationally.
