New Entrepreneurs Foundation

Entrepreneur and Investor

Tiffany was working on an equity derivatives desk and found it soulless. She was lost in a big corporate machine and wanted to think freely and creatively. There was an entrepreneurial spirit in her that needed nurturing, support and direction. A friend told her about NEF and she found something that provided exactly what she was after. Leaving her job in the City was a logical and easy next step.

During her NEF year Tiffany was placed at the Business Growth Fund. Working at the BGF she took the Venture Capital route into the world of start-ups. Whilst on the programme, she started a successful blog featuring inspirational female entrepreneurs (  She now is an investment manager and founding team member at AllBright and part of a team that funds and supports the UK’s best female-led businesses. 


NEF has been the catalyst to completely change my thinking and approach to my career and given me the confidence and motivation to embark on both my own venture as well as take the risk of joining a brand new start- up.
