Since launching in 2012 our alumni network has grown to nearly 300 members, and now spans the globe.

Alumni are a vital part of the NEF community – supporting one another via masterclasses, organising their own events, connecting with new NEF+ programme members and helping to recruit future programme participants.  Our alumni have gone on to found, lead and grow businesses – both in the UK and globally – you can find their details below.

Given our key mission of helping young entrepreneurs to build scalable businesses, we are particularly proud of the achievements of founder alumni, who collectively have raised more than £140m in early-stage funding and creating 2,600+ new jobs in more than 170 live ventures*.
