Each year we select up to 50 outstanding individuals with true entrepreneurial spirit.
Entrepreneurs are go-getters who like to build and create things. They are comfortable with uncertainty and are not averse to taking risks. They are dreamers who solve real problems. They see opportunity everywhere and they listen. They are natural leaders, are resilient and thrive under pressure. Does this sound like you? Our selection process is competitive, but we’d like to think enjoyable.
Applications for the NEF Class of 2018 will open on 9 January and close on 30 March 2017. The final selection days will take place in late March and April.
The programme was extremely, appealing as it is very rare to experience a structured introduction to the world of running your own business, straight out of university. Being part of the NEF programme has given me the validation and confidence I needed to be an entrepreneur plus I’ve been introduced to an awesome group of people who are like me - young entrepreneurs experiencing growing a venture.
