Here from some of the entrepreneurial talent in our community below:


NEF was a transformational experience for me. I have gained a comprehensive understanding of the current and most useful frameworks for starting up, running and scaling a new business. Furthermore I have an extensive and extremely helpful network that has already proved invaluable to me. Being on the NEF programme has also presented many incredibly opportunities, including the opportunity to be part of the founding team of a new bio-inspired technology company – a hugely exciting and fast-growing space.

NEF has given me a vast range of skills and experiences that no other learning programme could provide. From insightful speakers at inspirational venues such as the London Stock Exchange, to nutting out numbers in our entrepreneurial finance workshop with a venture capitalist, culminating in a pitch to high profile investors, the programme is holistic, immersive, and undoubtedly a formative stepping stone for anyone interested in entrepreneurship.

From Wealth Management to Entrepreneur… I couldn’t have done it without NEF The NEF has provided me with the mentorship and support system to guide me through the transition from wealth management to entrepreneur. NEF not only gave me the facilities, network and opportunity to develop my business ideas, but they also believed that each of us will be one of the next generation of top entrepreneurs in the UK. That has been invaluable and it gave me the confidence to co-found two new tech ventures: EverCare ( and a Travel Trader App. I wouldn’t have reached this point without the support of my sponsor company Talk Talk, my mentors: Sir Charles Dunstone, Dido Harding, Neil McArthur and Carlos Soares and of course the many training providers that have made the learning with NEF possible. Thank you once again for everything.”

On February 12th NEF will be hosting the next edition of our Speaker Series events, panel discussions curated designed to connect and engage the NEF community.

This special event focuses on the opportunities for women in the tech industry, sharing speakers’ experience and advice. The challenges of leadership – building and motivating teams, resolving challenges – professional and people-related, and how to develop skills throughout your career. We expect the panel discussion to be wide-ranging and thought-provoking, and will be followed by Q&A.
