CFE Team Update
This quarter, we welcomed several new joiners to our team:
- Ben Macgill, our Talent Founder Lead for the NEF+ Spring 2023 cohort, who previously scouted the 2020 Cohort.
- Claire Renwick, our Community Development & Events Lead, helping to further develop CFE’s communities, including the Incubator and Accelerator Network and Refugee Entrepreneurship Network.
- Adam Holmes has taken over the Operations Lead role (previously helmed by Izzy Daly-Carnell), supporting the operational activities undertaken to deliver NEF+, research and policy delivery activity and events, as well as managing CFE’s internal systems.
Alongside these changes, we said goodbye to Izzy (our Operations Lead) and Bella and EJ (our Research & Network Leads) and wish them all the best in their next chapters!
