New Entrepreneurs Foundation

How it works

Entrepreneurship in action

We are on a mission to develop the entrepreneurial leaders of the future. We are here to give you the confidence, training, skills and access to networks to help you launch game-changing businesses. We have designed a unique 12-month programme that will help you fulfil your potential. For many, the NEF year has been transformational – we look forward to taking you to the next level.  

 

Work placement

We believe in learning-by-doing. You will spend a year working within entrepreneurial teams at innovative organisations.  You will work alongside founders, CEOs and senior management teams. This will allow you to gain valuable insight into how fast growing businesses works. Learn from inspirational people on a daily basis, have a real impact – and - earn a salary.

Learning & development

We take you from idea to launching your business. We will equip you with essential skills and give you the confidence to put your entrepreneurial drive into action. We’ve teamed up with top business schools and learning providers to give you a unique hands-on education in entrepreneurship. You will learn and grow.

Coaching & mentoring

We take a personal approach to help you fulfil your potential. We match you to an executive coach to bring the best out of you and challenge your thinking throughout the year. They’ll support you when things get tough. Your business mentors will act as your sounding board to test your business ideas and strategies. Honest and actionable feedback.

Events

We like to be social and we love to hear from inspirational people. Our events are a chance to build your network. Hear from some pretty amazing entrepreneurs and learn how they’ve dealt with failure and success. This is your opportunity to quiz them and get your voice heard too.

Outreach

We believe that an entrepreneurial mindset needs to be celebrated and set free from a young age. This is why we encourage you to go into your local communities and schools to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. We’d like you to give back.   

Each year NEF bring together a melting pot of talented people from different experiences and sectors, which means that an internal network is created of honest, hardworking individuals. The learning programme provides a deep-dive into a myriad of business models, growth frameworks, and investment opportunities — helping the entire cohort to nurture their venture/idea.
