Our NEF+ alumni members and team recently had the opportunity to mentor a group of underrepresented founders as part of the Shadow to Shine programme, in partnership with Founders Forum.
Shadow to Shine supports ambitious founders and leaders (between 16-25 years old) who might face systemic barriers in building their professional goals.
Over 4 weeks, they equip participants with entrepreneurial skills training and 1:1 mentorship – in the lead up to a Dragons Den-style pitch event. This particular cohort saw founders building ventures across Web3, wearables, food and more.
Thank you to Shadow to Shine, Founders Factory and Founders Forum for involving us in this cohort – and well done to the young founders/ participants on their brilliant pitches and ventures!
