The New Entrepreneurs Foundation (NEF), a not-for-profit organisation that looks to support young talent, has put out a call for young entrepreneurs to take part in its upcoming 12-month entrepreneurship development programme.

Due to start in September 2016, successful applicants will receive a paid work placement in a high-growth company, membership in a 10-month fast-track programme, access to an executive coach and a business mentor and a monthly speaker & networking events.

The programme is supported by large corporates such as McKinsey, CVC and Rothschild, as well as fast growth start-ups including Uber, and JustPark.

NEF claims to have helped 120 young individuals create 40 businesses over the last five years, raising almost £3m in early stage and seed funding between them.

Applications for the programme close in mid-February. Those interested can complete an online entry form here.
