NEF Christmas Newsletter 2017

Header (1)


The NEF Christmas Newsletter is out! Packed full of announcements and news from our community. We’ve covered our recent announcement that we’ve joined forces with CFE, the launch of the NEF Christmas Market, our upcoming Demo Day event in January, and a round up of news from our community.

Here’s the introduction from our CEO, Neeta Patel:


Welcome to the NEF Christmas newsletter. 

2017 has been another memorable year for the New Entrepreneurs Foundation, and a milestone year in our story: we joined forces with the Centre for Entrepreneurs, welcomed the support of our cornerstone donor, Letter One, and moved into our own offices. 

It’s also been a landmark year of impact – today we count 92 NEFer founded live businesses, who have collectively raised more than £27M in early stage funding and created more than 1,000 jobs. Let’s not forget our 7th NEF cohort, made up of 46 future leaders who have impressed us with their wholehearted engagement in the programme. We are immensely proud of what the NEFers, past and present, have achieved. 

This impact would not be possible without the engagement of our donors, network and community – one that grows stronger each year. I would like to thank you all for your continued support, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. Have a wonderful Christmas and all the very best for 2018. 

Warm Regards,
