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.
I’m lucky to have been part of NEF and have had the gulf between myself and those that can help support my business idea closed. NEF has given me the opportunities to help me get Spiela off the ground. It has boosted my self-confidence and my belief that I can be an entrepreneur and lead a successful venture.
