Founders Forum is Europe’s preeminent entrepreneur network, convening the most inspirational founders alongside corporate and government leaders and investors to accelerate the positive impact of technology.

As the Founders Forum community has grown, it has built a family of companies to support the needs of entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey. These businesses cover advisory, executive search, diversity and inclusion, venture creation, investment, education, giving and more.

The NEF+ partnership with Founders Forum is a new and exciting partnership that aligns with FF’s mission in promoting entrepreneurship and driving change through technology.

NEF+ alumni gain access to key networks, including Founders of the Future, fast-track access to competitions including Elevating Founders Festival, Pitch-Offs and the F Factor.

This joint approach is grounded in our belief that the UK needs to nurture a generation of founders to become the engine of growth for the British economy.

“While the tech sector goes from strength to strength, and there are a growing number of opportunities for technical training, the route to founder and/or operator remains less clear. The partnership will provide more pathways to entrepreneurship for aspiring founders and operators from all backgrounds”.

Brent Hoberman, co-founder and chairman of Founders Forum
