NEF+ takes the insights and real-world experience from successful serial-founders,  compressing years’ worth of lessons and mastery into six months of targeted development.

NEF+ Impact (2011 to date)

NEF+ Alumni have gone on to create over 200 live businesses, 5,000 jobs, raise £221m in early-stage funding and now have a collective valuation of £630m.
